JQteacher ,

Well organized, nice resource, a few issues

I downloaded this app and I played around with it with my sons and merge cube. I teach biology so I was interested in whether it would be something I could use in my classroom. I would definitely consider using it, it is well organized and nicely done. Differing text levels are so nice so that the activity can be used as a simple overview or a more in depth look and they included what I feel is important and clear information.

However there are a couple of errors that I noticed within a few minutes of playing with it. In the plant cell, I could not get the vacuole to work.

Also, for example, when I was reading about the deer (animal cells) at the middle school level I saw a typo (snergy vs energy). If the developers just go through it one more time for grammatical errors and to make sure that every “button” works, these would be solved. I didn’t go through everything so those errors may not even be widespread, just wanted to point them out!

The challenge only allowed me to name the areas in the island... especially at the upper grade levels, students would find that rather insulting. Is the challenge supposed to extend to the cells themselves? I might have missed how to do that, but I tried to figure it out!

Catch us at the support email if you have any additional feedback or you’d like to talk about other content areas for the future.
