In AR Adventures, players can visit a farm and go to a fair right in their own room as they practice spatial thinking! The app uses augmented reality (AR) technology that incorporates characters and scenes onto the player’s real world. Navigate through a farm to pick apples and feed the animals! Visit rides at the fair to get stickers and fill in a map! This app supports children’s math skills like understanding vocabulary for spatial relationships, using maps to plan and follow paths, and making maps to show spatial relationships.

AR Adventures is part of the Early Math with Gracie & Friends math-focused preschool curriculum supplement that includes both classroom and at-home resources. AR Adventures and complementary activities for preschool classrooms and families were created as part of a research and development project to explore how AR can support young children’s spatial learning.
