What is Rugs aliveTM?

Rugs alive is a colorful and durable interactive classroom rug that comes to life in the classroom with the mobile Rugs alive app that is used to scan the rug. Each of our 26 animals come alive when matched with its correct habitat card (available to download and Print). Students can walk around the animals and explore them from all sides and can also play the Zoo Crew Alphabet Song right from the rug, which is perfect for reinforcing the alphabet through sight, song, and 3D magic.

Additionally, the rug can be utilized to increase student collaboration, relationship building, effective communication and early concepts of STEM and problem solving.

Great for whole group and center time activities!
