Percy's Animal Explorer

Join Percy the Caterpillar as he discovers different animals and the sounds they make. Locations include a farm, a garden, the jungle and under the sea. Colour photographs, animal sounds and speech successfully combine to encourage children to progress in a variety of educational games that reinforce ICT skills, together with picture and sound recognition.

Spoken instructions make the program suitable for unsupervised use and it is also compatible with touch screens. The games enable children to listen to different sounds and work out which animal makes them, find the odd one out, match pictures to sounds, learn where different animals live, complete a simple quiz and discover the sounds and characteristics of the animals.

Key features:

  • Covers habitats including rainforest, ocean, sea, grassland, woodland, home and garden.
  • Fully narrated for unsupervised learning.
  • Fun activities with an animated reward when the activity is complete.
  • Three levels of difficulty for different ages.
