It's perfect for children 4-8 and is ideal for supporting classroom activities of all types (or just as fun to play at home!). Futaba is a great way to learn a 2nd language learner or you could even use it in your history class. The idea is simple; Each player takes a seat around the iPad and taps in to start. The game begins as images zoom into the playing area. The first player to match the word to the image scores a point. Win 3 rounds and you'll be awarded a giant (but very friendly) seedling. Futaba (Japanese for 'seedling") was originally conceived by Dave Wingler, from Osaka Kunei Girls' Junior and Senior High in Osaka, Japan. The idea was to provide a simple and fun way for ESL students to practice learning words in a classroom environment. After contacting INKids, we decided to build the Futaba game so it could not only be used in Dave's classroom, but in homes and classrooms throughout the world. Futaba comes with over 100 wonderful hand drawn illustrations, professional audio soundtracks and has high quality visuals (just check the screen shots below).
