And the way I see it, my little man has the same enthusiasm for learning, too. He loves flipping through books, he loves asking all sorts of questions, and he absolutely loves school. For a three-year-old, he's quite an eager beaver - even refusing to skip school (he's in Kindergarten, by the way) despite heavy, incessant rainfall. Which is why I'm always on the look-out for new and fun ways to feed his mind and keep the enthusiasm burning.
Just recently I discovered a hidden gem in the virtual world of learning.
I came across Tropic Mind, an educational virtual world for kids. Here, you will find many different islands, where each island is devoted to a specific educational topic.
Topics include Math, Physics, Biology, Anatomy, Health and Nutrition, Ancient History, Astronomy, Ecology and the Environment, and a whole lot more.
|Physics made simple.|
|Health and Nutrition emphasized.|
|History made alive.|
|Math made fun.|
|World History in animation.|
|Caring for the environment.|
As for the kids, they have these guys to guide them as they explore the different islands and go through the lessons.
To make the learning experience a more personalized one, Tropic Mind allows you to create your own character and style it up to your liking. You also have your own island, which you can decorate as you wish. You even have the option to keep and take care of a pet, too!
There's a clothes shop, a furniture shop, and a pet shop where you can buy all sorts of items for you, your pet, and your island home. The coins needed to buy from these shops can be earned through the educational games.
Learning becomes more fun and exciting when you have friends with you. Tropic Mind feels the same way, which is why the site provides you the option to interact with your friends by chatting, sharing virtual items, or sending gifts.
