SuperKids Educational Software
"Tonka Construction provides an informative introduction to the
world of construction through a glossary section, called "Info Alley", which
details 14 'rigs' and their uses; a puzzle/paint section that allows the user
to study 3 of the trucks in depth by repairing and painting them, and hands-on
experience with such basics as demolition, survey, excavation and building, It
provides valuable computer practice for a group of children that may find
sitting at the computer an unappealing and difficult chore. It furthermore
drills necessary school-related skills such as following directions, and fine
motor manipulation. Mouse clicking and dragging initiates and completes most
actions, spatial information is observed and processed, and trucks are
carefully and precisely maneuvered."
