What is it
World History For Kids is suitable for Key Stage 2/3 History.
Children can explore from the very beginning ..The Big Bang, Earth and the solar system…through the Egyptians and Greeks and to modern history with the Man on the Moon.
Each historical section begins with an audio narrative summarising the events and includes animations, interactive clues, facts, maps, charts and audio clips.
An interactive timeline allows the child to travel back and forward in time. Historical periods are organized thematically and chronologically from the ancient world through the 20th century.
Specially designed for children of 6 years and up.

What our team of testers said
"You should go on this game, it's epic. I'm learning lots of facts" - Girl aged 9

- Develop a child's knowledge and understanding of history
- Provide key facts and events to consolidate classroom learning
What our experts think
A great app for teaching children key historical facts (lots of which would be taught to children in key stages 2 and 3.) The interactive elements made the app fun and help to engage children. This would be a good way to supplement children’s learning in school – perfect for homework!
We liked the fact the children could have the information read to them or turn off the voices and read for themselves.
It would be even better if...
We would like to have seen more facts for each historical period so that children could deepen their knowledge and understanding.
