I am starting to buy into this idea of teaching and really connecting material through games and apps. I was sort of on board with this concept, but since playing around with The Elements (a Harry Potter version of the Periodic Table) that my brother-in-law turned me on to, I am now a believer as I saw, with my own eyes, how captivated my kids were with the Periodic Table, an otherwise dull chart.
A toad chanced upon my path and I snapped its picture and noticed how well camouflaged it was. This lead to Frog and Toad science fun including some info, a worksheet, a great iPad app, and my favorite Arnold Lobel series Frog and Toad.
I recommend this app as a way of making science an interactive and fun experience for children. I think even children as young as five-years-old would enjoy this if they show an interest in science. And I think that is the key here. This app is great for anyone who is fascinated by frogs, amphibians, nature, animals, biology, and science. It’s a great hands clean and hands on experience! To check out the app at iTunes, just click on the icon at the very top of the frog.
