See the pterodactyl catch fish to eat – but what eats the pterodactyl? What happens when the cavemen encounter a sabre toothed tiger? See if anyone can roar louder than the tyrannosaurus rex, and find out if the mammoth can rescue her baby from the tar pit. Watch as the mollusca turns into a fossil.

What are SwitchIt! Extra Flash Cards?
‘Flash Cards’ are single images taken from the program’s theme. They appear on screen in response to switch presses, with an additional press to hear the accompanying text spoken.
What are SwitchIt! Extra Picture Builds?
‘Picture Builds’ create composite pictures piece by piece, in response to switch presses. You can vary the number of presses required in order to build the complete picture. When it is complete, the user is rewarded by lots of exciting animation and sound.
SwitchIt! Extra Stories?
‘Stories’ are stepped, animated sequences that are revealed in response to switch presses. There are four-second pauses between each step, to encourage students to watch and understand the unfolding story. You can use these to discuss what the characters are doing and why.
Also included is a new Picture Menu. This will allow non-literate students to choose which story or picture they would like to play, from a selection chosen by the teacher or carer.
