Sorting Machine is a free sorting, sequencing app that asks users to sort a series of six similar objects according to different variables, i.e. “shortest to tallest”, “lowest to highest”, as well as basic alphanumeric sequencing (a,b,c,d,e/1,2,3,4,5). The app is arranged by levels which users can unlock by successfully sequencing or sorting many series of objects. It takes a little while to unlock each level and this “game” element has been generally minimized while using the app in a classroom setting, emphasizing instead correctly sequencing or sorting each group of objects. It is also worth noting that there is no voice over instruction in this app so it is best suited to children who can distinguish differences between six similar objects and understand the illustrated instructions at the top of each challenge screen.
Sorting Machine is suitable for Lower Primary.
