Solar Walk: 3-D Solar System Model
Can you say... PHENOMENAL? I think the pictures explain the app for itself. The models are very detailed and accurate. There is a fast-forwarding time interface, and you can zoom past the planets as well as view their inner structures and see each of them close-up. A teacher stated, "I showed my class and they were all amazed! The planets looked so detailed and the Sun's glowing and fiery animation really captivated everyone's attention (including me!). I'd recommend anyone teaching or learning about the solar system this app. Five stars!"
p.s. The National Geographic GeoBee Challenge for $1.99 is the PERFECT companion.
National Geographic Explorer Magazine
This wonderful classroom magazine is available digitally as an e-magazine. The app looks excellent with sound effects, vivid graphics, and of course, incredible science information. This is certainly one of my favorite educational magazines; hopefully you see why!
Awesome free app; opportune time to teach kids about how the Titanic was constructed. This app has interesting, old-fashioned animation.
In this e-book, a character named Bobo meets Thomas Alva Edison and learns about the properties of light, including reflection and refraction, as well as interactive holograms and color.This app has an interesting format and received the Apple Design Award for 2012. Impressive honor!
Puzzleography Lite: USA Geography Puzzle Game
This seems like an excellent game if you are interested in learning United States geography and/or need practice in learning where the states are located.
A Charlie Brown Christmas digital book app
I grew up with this movie, and the app is beautiful. It has very high reviews. Understandably so!
My aunt from New Hampshire introduced me to this app. Honestly, despite the title (LOL), I think it is wonderful for thinking outside the box and following directions. There are manipulations in this game that change quickly, such as where a certain button is located you need to press. I feel this app is excellent to see how closely one can pay attention, especially when the white index cards come up and you have to do the opposite of what the cards say.
