How I Use It
I have used this in after-school enrichment time. Kindergarten students request to use this app for the gravitational pull space activity. Third grade students have enjoyed watching video clips. I look forward to use this app as an intro to topics before hands-on activities during K-5 science classes. There also terrific suggestions for hands on learning opportunities.
My Take
This app allowed the students to be engaged into the science content through space apps. Some of the students desire to further their knowledge watch the videos offered as well. It is a good mix. I do not like the lack of directions with some of the aspects, but the students persistence are able to figure it the way through this app.
