How I Use It
I have used this with a SPED Life Skills class after we did some work on body parts and health. It was just an extension or extra activity. The students did not really learn anything knew. It gave them something fun to do after their work. It was more a fun reward. I do not recommend spending money on this program.
My Take
This is a cute program and will catch the student's eye and they will enjoy doing it, but they will not be learning much more than basic first aid. Wash a cut and put on a band-aid. Nothing is said about germs, skin, etc. It may be a good program to teach students how to use the ipad or to keep them busy. Students soon complete the entire program and then are bored. Good for very young and special needs as a beginning app.
