How I Use It
Fantastic nonfiction "book" for students of many ages to enjoy as a class or in small groups. The reading levels allow for all readers to gain the same information about ants, but with different vocabulary - a great leveler in the classroom.
My Take
I love that the reading level can be adapted for this app, so young and older children can both enjoy learning about ants. Selecting the beginner level allows students to hear the words being read aloud. Ants "crawl" across each page and tapping the ant opens a dialogue box with more ant facts.
