The MarcoPolo literacy curriculum immerses the learner in a text-rich digital environment. The curriculum targets a wide range of skill levels, from emergent readers to advanced learners. Learners are propelled by their curiosity to learn more about the content of the text as they gain skills in the following areas:
-Digraphs and Blends
-Handwriting/ Letter Formation
-High Frequency/ Sight Words
Our math curriculum exposes the learner to mathematical activities that develop number sense so that your child will not only recognize numbers, but also be able to use them with ease and apply them in a real-world context. The math curriculum includes:
-Addition and Subtraction Facts
-Counting in Ones and Groups (5s and 10s)*
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics):
Exploration is at the core of the science experience in the MarcoPolo World School. The main objective is to promote the notion that knowledge can be gained through exploration of the world around us. The characters model curiosity consistent with the development of scientific literacy and practices of science (i.e. experimenting, making models, supporting claims with evidence). Our rich curriculum includes exploration of:
-The Human Body
-Habitats and Biomes
-Climate and Weather
-Behavior and Physical Adaptations
-Living vs. Nonliving*
-Inventions and Innovations*
-Forces and Motion*
MarcoPolo offers a rich social studies curriculum to allow children to see how familiar concepts from their everyday lives manifest themselves around the world. They will learn about themselves, as well as gain knowledge of others. Topics include:
-Holidays and Traditions
-Music and Arts
-Major Historical Events
-Famous Historical Figures
-Resources around the World
The MarcoPolo curriculum is designed to facilitate your child’s social-emotional development and create the framework and mental process that will later allow them to plan, make positive decisions, focus, multi-task, have self-control and establish healthy social connections. To do this, the learner:
-Interacts with diverse characters that model positive social behaviors
-Is encouraged by narrators using process-oriented speech
-Develops skills in short-term memory through various games
-Is exposed to transferable language that can be applied to everyday life experiences to help with conflict resolution, perseverance and acceptance of differences

Ratings and Reviews
App says it needs update
I’ve updated and it still won’t open , saying it needs to update.
First lesson and it’s already wrong...
nebulae are not “beyond our galaxy”. At least not the ones they are trying to describe. The Crab Nebula is not beyond our galaxy. It’s only 6000ly away. Our galaxy is 150,000ly across at least. It’s a supernova remnant. It’s very small and fuzzy in a telescope and not the type of star factory you would see from massive nebulae like Horsehead, North American or Lagoon...also, in our galaxy.
App is nice, but I can’t see why I’d be asked to pay the price of Netflix for an education product lacking in education.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for sharing this. We checked with our writing team and they view the interpretation of the wording here can lead to some possible confusion. The intent of our writers is to say that some Star Nebulas are beyond our galaxy. We will amend the narration to be more clear.
