Maurice on the Moon – Interactive

Maurice on the Moon is the story of a boy growing up in a frontier mining colony on the Moon. Maurice’s parents have fled the Earth dreaming of citizenship and a better life, but Maurice hates the Moon and dreams of leaving it forever. More than anything, Maurice wants to get to Earth, an impossible planet where the air is free and water falls from the sky! However, leaving home isn’t as easy as it seems, and paradise doesn’t always keep its promises! Interactive edition includes full text, quizzes, pop-up glossary, animated interactive science modules, science activities, and on-line support. Kids have been enjoying the Maurice series at home, on vacation, and everywhere else.

The interactive edition comes with full teacher (and parent) support for those that want it. The edition includes a full 4-6 week curriculum, and meets all national and state science standards for a unit on the Earth-Moon system. The award-winning book and curriculum have been clinically tested and shown to increase student scores on standards-based exams. Curriculum is scalable for multiple grade and difficulty levels. Full support for teachers and home school parents in the book and online atwww.mauriceonthemoon.com.

This interactive version of Maurice on the Moon can be purchased on iTunes and runs exclusively on the iPad.
