As a homeschooling mom I am frequently looking for new resources to help my son learn. I prefer to find items that he can use that seem more like fun and play than school!
I was excited when I got the opportunity to check out Animal Jam. From the start the website is colorful, inviting and seems to be really fun! My son was sitting beside me when I first checked out the site and he said, “Wow, Mommy! What is that?!” Before we even started playing on this site he was excited and curious!
This website has both free games to play and paid membership area. In the free zone your child can create an animal and take part in lots of free play games and activities. Or you can create a paid subscription for way more activities and learning options!
All educational content is accessible to players for free, including Animal Jam Academy – a premier online resource center where kids can download exciting activities to complete when they’re not online. Animal Jam memberships are available for players who want access to additional animals, accessories, dens, and den items. Membership details are located here.
I am impressed with this website! As well is my son! As we speak he is asking me if I’m almost finished writing so he can use my laptop to get back onto his Animal Jam adventures!
As a parent, I love the educational credentials backing this site. Not only is it created in partnership with National Geographic, players are able to interact with real scientists during their learning play!
Animal Jam is a safe and exciting online playground for kids who love animals and the outdoors. Players create and customize their own animal characters and dens, chat with friends, adopt pets, team up for adventures, and feed their curiosity about animals and the natural world around them. Created in partnership with National Geographic, Animal Jam features classic playground role playing infused with the life sciences. Players can collect fun facts in their journey books, learn about Animal Conservation in Kimbara Outback, and talk to real scientists, like herpetologist Dr. Brady Barr and marine biologist Tierney Thys.
I really love this site and I think that you and your little ones will as well! Head over here to check it out!
