Phineas and Ferb cartridge - 2013 Winner of the Parents' Choice Silver Award!
Join Phineas and Ferb to create wild inventions! When Phineas and Ferb decide to build the ultimate water balloon launcher, Dr. Doofenshmirtz has other plans. Get hands-on with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills to make this the best day ever!
• Rebuild Engineering Blueprints: Use logic and spatial reasoning skills to piece together blueprints for the ultimate water balloon launcher.
• Get Ready for Launch with Math: Practice addition, subtraction and multiplication skills to power up the balloon launcher and to deactivate the stinkbots.
This Phineas and Ferb adventure is designed to give children 5 to 8 an exciting introduction to STEM subjects, including physical science, engineering concepts, problem solving, logic and reasoning skills, and mathematics. Early exposure to these subjects lays an important foundation for children’s engagement and success in later school years. Not only are STEM subjects critical to the 21st Century curriculum, they also provide a good context for children to practice problem-solving skills.

To read independently, children must understand the relationship between the sounds in spoken words and the letters that represent those sounds.
Children learn about the properties of matter, forms of energy and nature of technology through observation and experimentation.
Children use logical reasoning skills and investigate multiple possibilities to develop creative problem-solving strategies.
Logic and reasoning
Logic and reasoning skills begin to develop at an early age and are used to solve problems and draw conclusions.
Tables, charts and graphs
The ability to use graphical representation, such as tables, graphs, charts and grids, is important in solving and enjoying real-life math problems.
There are many different types of measurement that children need to learn: time, distance, temperature, volume and so on. Measurement has applications in many subjects, especially science.
As understanding of the spelling system grows, children move from using 1-2 letter spellings (D for dog, or CT for cat), to adding vowel sounds, and eventually spelling words with less predictable patterns.
Addition and Subtraction
Children learn to add and subtract quantities from each other, sometimes with objects, and sometimes with symbolic equations such as 4 + 3 = __ or 4 - 3 = __.
