Smarty 1st History – 4 lessons and 4 games allow your child to recognize the Mona Lisa and other significant pieces of art in the Art History level. Learn important dates and view major pieces of technology in History of Technology. Continue increasing your knowledge about important events in the American History level.

Bad graphics. Does this app do anything?
I got this app for my 3 kids, but I don't understand what to do. When you launch it, it shows a menu of 1 choice, "History" and when you click that you go to a menu of 5 lessons. When you click on any of the lessons, you get four pictures at the top of the next screen, which are grouped into Art History, American History, Inventions, etc. plus a timeline below. You have to already know where to drag the icons to the timeline, and if you drag them to the right year, they stick. When you get them all done, SmartyShortz appears and says "Game Time." You click the word bubble and it goes to another screen where each of the items from the previous screen becomes a golf hole/flag. If you tip your iPad, you can get the golf ball to (slowly) roll into one of the holes, and when it does, SmartyShortz says, "Way to go!" and then you're back at the main screen where you choose another lesson. Bizarre. Are we supposed to be learning about history here?
Done in two minutes
This is bad. My son completed all 4 "lessons" in 2 minutes and that was it. Very misleading description. A complete bust.
