10 Fun Apps for Fifth Grade Learning

7 of 10

SimplePhysics

Create a simple tree house that won't topple over—or go big and construct a skyscraper that can withstand tornado-force winds. Whatever the project, budding builders will stretch and strengthen their knowledge of physics, engineering and money math with this innovative app.

Specific project specs outline the structure that little architects must build to withstand whatever is thrown at it. Be warned; piecing together structures definitely isn't as easy as it looks! Design in blueprint mode and then stress-test creations to see if your building makes the grade. Points are earned for the integrity of the structure, and also for staying within project parameters.

Project variety mixed with realistic (but fun) gameplay ensures budding engineers will keep coming back for new projects and play time.
