How I Use It
When I bought this App I thought I would use it as part of a research center when we were working on our non-fiction reports. However once my students started using it I quickly learned that while there are facts about animals in this App it more of a following directions and listening skill acquisition App and not a science App as I thought. My first graders got bored with it quickly. I will keep this App to use with students who have skill deficits but not with my whole class.
My Take
I think this App is more of a PreK - K App unless you are working with low functioning first graders. PreK and K student I think would enjoy this App more than my students did. I could see you making this into a center to working on following directions and listening skills. Using animals make the app more appealing to students but there is not much science content to the App.
