Zurk's Rainforest Lab presents a variety of early learning activities
centered in a Central American rainforest. Five activities begin
from the Mercado or marketplace. In the "Egghunt" twelve eggs
are hidden in three levels of the rainforest. The first few eggs
are obvious, but the game quickly becomes more challenging. Clicking
an animal in the "Jungle Discovery" section opens a window of
text with optional narration. Students can use a camera button
to take pictures for viewing in the "Photo Album." Each page of
the album holds two pictures and space for text entry. Zurk spins
a sorting machine in "Seek and Sort," where students click and
drag 15 animals into appropriate categories. The sorter can be
set to spin at three different speeds. A graphing function monitors
progress. "Pattern Puzzles" has six geometric shapes that are
rotated and fitted into various patterns. Each section is preceded
by a riddle, with the answer provided when users exit the activity.
Work created in several activities can be printed.
