DynaMo's Show
This engaging game develops childrens understanding of the concept of chronology and the notion of the passing of time. Users are taught to place objects in a chronological order, and see the development of objects over time - in this instance modes of transport.

What Comes From When?
This game encourages children to see history from a local and personal perspective. Set in childrens bedrooms in the 1950s and the year 2000, this game encourages users to compare and contrast objects. The game also assists with childrens understanding of chronology and historical enquiry. The use of personal objects which children see in their day to day life ensures that children start to see history from a personal perspective.
