How I Use It
This is a nice app for students when learning about animals and plants. Once students choose their level then a statement is given which students must be able to read. If students need a hint to help select the right pictures, then they can click on the question mark on the screen. Students like to know if they classified correctly as pictures show a check mark or an X and they get a score. They also really like earning points in order to unlock the levels. Creature cards are earned when levels are completed successfully. Students like to collect different cards and learn fun facts about different organisms. This app helps students practice what they've learned and gives them a chance to improve and move through more challenging levels.
My Take
Classify It provides colorful pictures at each level that keep students engaged. I like the fact that this app provides three levels for differentiation. Immediate feedback is given as well as the opportunity to replay in order to help learn and improve the score and points. Players can be added which allows multiple users to use the app on the same device. This also allows teachers to view student progress and check for understanding of the content. This app is very user-friendly and does a nice job of providing science concepts in a fun and meaningful way.
