A Platypus in My House! Fun and Learning Through Augmented Reality
My four-year-old loves
Gus the Platypus in the Pete the Cat series. A couple of weeks ago that led to her asking questions like “can we get a platypus?” and “what’s a platypus sound like?” My answers were “no” and “I don’t know.” I did, however, put an augmented reality platypus in our house.
This video had what I needed.
Kids who are older than my preschooler can learn a lot about how the biology of a platypus through a fascinating TED-Ed lesson titled A Year in the Life of One of Earth’s Weirdest Animals.
