Animal Facts With Barefoot Atlas App
The Barefoot World Atlas App ($4.99) is a great app to help kids to learn vocabulary while virtually exploring the globe. This week my class is using the app to learn fact about animals. As you can see from the image above the app has many icons placed all around the world and when the kids touch one of the icons they are given some facts about it (check out the video example below.) A great feature for young kids is the app will read the facts to the kids. My literacy center for this app is pretty simple. The kids find animals they like and then draw the picture and write the word. I have included that printable below if you would like to use it. Next week we will use the app again but I will let the kids write any of the icons/words they like.
