Get right into the action with favorite Transformers Rescue Bots! Your child will have loads of exciting opportunities to apply new knowledge, but first, there’s some fun training to do. Little ones learn about the complexities of nature and of natural phenomena. They review a Rescue Briefing, select a mission and get familiar with using a map to better understand the challenge that lies ahead. Then it’s time to take action! The first task is to select the correct gear for the mission at hand. Once suited up, little adventure seekers head to the scene, avoiding hazards and remembering to collect Energon to power up. To complete the rescue mission, little ones must identify landforms, hazards and more. When the mission’s complete, they use their newly acquired knowledge to disable the Disaster Machine.
The LeapFrog Difference
LeapFrog has created a learning/play environment that is developmentally appropriate for children ages 4 to 7 years. Transformers Rescue Bots Race to the Rescue introduces a range of different earth science topics from earthquakes to volcanoes and thunderstorms in a non-threatening, play-based manner. Each fun-filled lesson includes basic science concepts and vocabulary terms relating to each of the new topics. Your little scientist will also be more informed about how different natural phenomena impact human communities and lives. The lifecycle of a natural disaster is animated throughout the game, and your child gets to witness how first responders—firefighters, police, emergency pilot, etc.—might react and what special equipment they use. Tips on how to be safe in an emergency are also woven into each story. Designed to help your child feel safe and empowered, they receive light exposure to an often frightening topic. "This game builds learning right into the action. As children prepare the Rescue Bots for missions and pilot them through obstacles, they learn about real life science and social studies concepts that are key to completing those rescue missions. Whether it's outfitting first responders with the correct gear, identifying areas in danger on a map or understanding the science behind natural phenomena, children explore science concepts as they navigate their way to success in this game." - Clement C., LeapFrog Learning Expert
