National Geographic World

National Geographic World

This app is great for researching countries or regions. I chose to use this resource as students in Grade 5 are continiously studying Canadian regions and learning about multiculturalism in Canada. This app contains photos, description, & basic country facts which allows to keep students current with the world events.

Furthermore, it also has great lesson plan ideas, activities, printable worksheets and many more teaching resources.This app is a great cross-curricular resource as some of the publications can connect with science, social studies and reading and arts. This app can be found on the Iphone and Ipad.

Due to the cross curricular nature of the app, I would rate this app "Superior".
