Find them all: looking for animals [text]

Link to the App Store

What I liked I like the fact that it is a game which keeps the interest of a variety of ages. My students especially enjoyed learning the names of the animals in multiple languages. Once they earned the camera and made puzzles, they were able to use problem solving skills to solve the puzzles. As a teacher, I loved the real life pictures of the animals. Many of my students have never been to the country and have never seen a fox, goat, or owl.
Improvements I would love to see other languages and more interactive games in a future version of this app. I would also like to see more information about each animal including their diet, life span etc. I could see using this app as a research site for developing a transactive writing piece. By including additional information regarding each animal, the students would have research quality information to synthesize into their own paper about the animal.
General review This application is highly entertaining for a range of students. The interactive challenges keep the child's attention and interest. Teachers will love this app because of the educational value and real world pictures but his app can be used as a springboard for discussions about biomes.
