Students will tour the Milky Way, travel through galaxy clusters, and engage in hands-on activities, such as making their own constellation and working a high-tech telescope with this interactive reading app for the iPad.
I particulrlary enjoyed the high image resolution and the interactivity available . The advantage with this app is that there are a multitude of EFL and ESL chapters in school text books this app could be used with . The students in primary school enjoy using the app to get a closer look at the galaxies . The older students in high school have used this app to compile group project work and do presentations . Teachers have used this as a warm up activity for the introduction to the planets and astronomy.
The bonus material is free to download from the Kids Discover site . Once you download the materal you will be sent notification and samples .
