Ratings and Reviews
I was very impressed by the first edition, Forest edition, so I had to purchase this edition as well....In a nicely designed backyard setting, we can explore all these familiar insects that we can find around our homes. Personally i'm not a big fan of insets, but I am surprised to say that I had fun reading all these interesting facts, and also some of the ecological videos were very eye-catching. I've shown it to my cousins, and they loved it as well. It's educational and entertaining!
Great Science App!
The app Meet the Insects: Village Edition is an amazing app with a wealth of knowledge to help children learn all about the different insects they can see when they are outside. It is a great in conjunction with Meet The Insects first app. This is a great app to use when teaching science such as life cycles and about all insects. I think this is a fun way to engage children in science. I know a lot of children are afraid of bugs for an example, so it would help with children get over their fear of insects with the ability to write a journal about what they think about when they see a bug.
I love that the children can write their own journal entries, including a picture of the bugs they see and write about what they have learned. I think the app gives children important knowledge of bugs and can be used to meet Common Core Learning standards in Science and English. I think this would be good for children between the ages of 6 and 14 years old and I think it has the potential to make a wonderful teaching tool within the classroom.
High Quality Elementary School Aged Kid Science App
The app is way to big! Too many MBs! Yes, the photos are great, somehow the developers need to manage this better.
This is a very polished app, serving a neglected audience of Elementary School aged children. The mix of high quality images and real scientific information presented artistically, clearly and accurately is much appreciated. This engages students to want to know more about the insects, and there are many ways they can explore further within the app. The layout is successful in presenting many different layers of accessing information.
Some translation is off - some phrases are just not quite right. The back or home button is still in Korean when on a detailed photo page, even on US English version. The voice is VERY professional. A little too stiff. . . sounds like an old filmstrip narration from the 1970s (or earlier). Although there are a few dozen insects represented, some very common North American insects are not . . . such as the Monarch Butterfly.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
