How I Use It
I had a small group of students use this app after I brought in some monarch caterpillars to the STEAM Lab. The app went into more detail than I expected and was a great way to reinforce the life cycle we'd discussed in class. My students had been having a hard time understanding how caterpillars shed their skin, and this helped them see the process. It was also helpful to explain how monarchs migrate.
My Take
I was surprised at how much detail about butterflies the app provided. I honestly would prefer to have this on my SMARTboard to use with a class whole group. It would work better if I had more than one iPad.
