How I Use It
I used the app in conjunction with 2-3 other president apps. We studied the timeline of American Presidents overall and then focused in on 2-4 distinguishing details of each president. Students then went further to write a research report about a chosen president. This app was used mainly for whole group learning in the beginning of our project while learning tidbits about presidents.
My Take
We liked the app and did use it for the intended purpose, to learn about presidents, but much preferred the interactivity, graphics, design, sound, and quirky facts that we were looking for from the Disney American Presidents app.
