How I Use It
I have seen teachers use this app with lower elementary students in a center to explore coding and cause/effect.
My Take
I enjoy showing lower elementary teachers the fun that can be had with Daisy the Dinosaur app. Students can program what the dinosaur does on the screen. The app has two modes, free-play and challenge. In the free-play mode, students can explore all the different ways Daisy can move. In the challenge mode, students have to complete the tasks in front of them.
