Get a Jump Start on Education

The JumpStart Series of multimedia CD-ROMs, from Knowledge Adventure, give children a head start on educational success. Kids laugh and learn as they navigate through a schoolhouse full of interactive songs, puzzles and games with friendly, animated hosts. Each JumpStart title is based on complete and comprehensive teacher lesson plans, emphasizing essential learning sills. The programs' adaptive learning tracks students' successes and attempts, continually adjusting to provide an appropriate level of challenge. A built-in Progress Report tracks each student's mastery of critical early-learning skills and displays the results in an easy-to-read bar graph. Teachers can update and print these reports instantly. Titles include JumpStart Preschool; JumpStart Kindergarten; JumpStart First Grade; and JumpStart Second Grade.
