Educational Programs For Pre-School, High School

Grover and Ernie from "Sesame Street" enliven two new educational games from CBS Learning Systems. Grover's Animal Adventures takes preschoolers into four different animal environments: the African Grasslands, the Atlantic Ocean, a North American forest, and a barnyard. Children select animated animals and objects and place them in the appropriate environment on land, in water, or in the sky. In Ernie's Big Splash, children help Ernie find his Rubber Duckie by building a pathway that leads from the Duckie's soap dish into Ernie's bathtub. Both games are for ages four to six; each lists for $14.95.

CBS has also released Mastering the ACT (American College Testing Assessment), a self-paced preparation course for high school students that was developed by the National Association of Secondary School Principals. The program features full-length simulated ACT pre- and post-tests which provide self-scoring and detailed error analysis. Development exercises cover English, math, social studies, and natural sciences. For the Commodore 64/128 ($79.95), the Apple II series, and IBM PC and PCjr ($99.95 each).
