Ask Oscar

Age Range: 4 – 14 years

Ask Oscar is the ideal application to help develop children's skills in using a branching database. The application allows children to create branching trees containing either pictures, text or both.

This classroom tool uniquely allows you to create, sort, edit and view the tree all in one single display. Children can visually see the tree growing as they enter their questions and perform sorts.
