Comment:Cute! Can also be used to reinforce complements of 10 with older children. Would be a 5, but dragging is picky - if you don't put them right in the window, and they don't sit, they don't count, even though they look like they're on the bus.

Comment:I love this game. I think young children would love it to learn counting.

Comment:Should be funny for kids. 2 things to improve: - remaining kids are pushed by the driving bus - kids not plaed exactly in a window don't count and do even disappear when the next one is poitioned there

Comment:this is a fun game because in game 15 the concept/idea of volume can be discussed with the smaller kids.

Comment:This is a very nice interactive activity, great way to introduce critical thinking at the kids level, the volume exercise is perfect for that!
