World’s Worst Pet is a free iPad app that contains a series of fun vocabulary games. In the app players have to help bring home Snargg, the world’s worst pet, who has run away. To get Snargg back players have to fill his food dish by learning new vocabulary words. Each of the six levels in the game contain ten dishes (each dish represents a new set of words) that can be filled. Four games are available for each dish. The games are fill-in-the-blank, synonym identification, antonym identification, and definition identification.
World’s Worst Pet is designed for students in grades four through eight. The app contains a total of 1,000 vocabulary words. I played the game for a while this morning and found myself enjoying it. In my time playing the game I could see that students could definitely get hooked on this vocabulary game.
Thanks to David Kapuler for recommending this app.
