What’s It Like? 

Arloon Solar System lets students explore the sun, Earth, moon, and our neighboring planets in detail. Kids use interactive technology to manipulate parts of our solar system to observe scientific phenomena like phases of the moon, tides, and eclipses. Users can also drag and drop planets to compare their sizes or zoom in on one planet and read a list of facts.  Then they can test their knowledge in the Space Station and earn badges for challenges they complete.

Price: $4

Grades: 1-8

Pros: Kids can zoom, rotate, read, and explore, making meaning on their own from what they find.

Cons: Kids can’t click on specific objects to learn more; there’s less interactivity here than in other apps from this developer.

Bottom line: A detailed, thought-provoking tool for taking an interactive journey through the solar system.
