Teacher Review for Amazing Alex

This engaging app allows your students to work through the problem of getting the ball into the basket.

Submitted August 6, 2013

My Take

Children learn perseverance as they work through each level. They are challenged to try again and again to find the correct path for the ball. They can guess and check each time they move something new.

How I Use It

Students can use this app during free time. It has even inspired some builders to try making paths like those in the app using marbles and blocks.
