Jerry the Bear makes learning fun!
By taking care of Jerry's diabetes, children gain hands-on practice with counting carbs, monitoring Jerry's blood sugar, and dosing Jerry with insulin.
Check Jerry's blood sugar by following the steps of lancing Jerry's finger and adding a test strip to the glucometer!
When Jerry's blood sugar goes high or low, Jerry speaks symptoms, encouraging kids to recognize how they feel.
(Glucometer, lancing device, food, pen needle and pump are virtual tools and are only available on the app. These are not physical objects :)
Virtual Insulin pen or pump
Use Jerry's insulin pen or pump to dose insulin. Learn about injection site rotation by using the injection sites on Jerry's arms, legs, belly, and butt.
Feed Jerry a healthy diet or give him junk food! Either way, kids learn about the impact that carbs have on blood sugar, and learn carb counts for basic foods.
