Dig into our planet and the geological forces that shape it.
***** Children's Technology Review Editor's Choice *****
"This is a great way to let children informally and playfully discover some of the big ideas they’ll encounter later on in their school curriculum. Apps like this one are good reminders for why you spent hundreds of dollars on a phone or tablet for your child." — Warren Buckleitner, editor, Children's Technology Review
Trigger earthquakes! Make volcanos erupt! Investigate plate tectonics, weathering, erosion, and deposition. Travel across time to see how our home has changed over eons, pre-Pangea to the present.
The Earth is an interactive model that lets kids study and observe the geological forces that change the planet—above and below the surface, in a matter of minutes and over millions of years.
The Earth is No. 5 in Tinybop’s Explorer’s Library series, designed for curious kids ages 4+ to dive deep into big ideas. The apps in this series have won Best of the App Store, App Store Editors’ Choice, Parents’ Choice, and Children's Technology Review Editor’s Choice awards.

Would not recommend
This was an extremely underwhelming app. From the pictures to the description it sounded like a really nice and unique app. However upon buying the app, actual use of it, was horrible. I would not recommend for anyone I know and strongly disagree to the idea and implements of the app.
Don't get it
I play this game and try to figure out what to do but I don't know how
Rich and deep but v fun exploration of the earth's terraforming systems. Recommend!
