Poisson Rouge – a site without language

Posted by rosiemacalpine on May 14, 2009

There are lots of lovely websites for young children that you explore in a class setting. But what if you want your children to navigate the site independently? Most website rely on some language prompts such as instructions or labelled buttons or menus to guide navigation.

Poisson Rouge is different. This flash based site opens with a colourful playroom. Click on the toy you’d like to play with, then explore! Sometimes you need to hover, sometimes click and drag. It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to work in small independent groups to solve problems. So fire up your board, stand back, and let your children investigate!
