I have some useful educational apps to use in our homeschool day. Today I have stumbled across many that are new to me. I have not totally used them but I thought I would share them as I find them to be really useful.
Journey North – is a FREE internet based program that explores aspects of seasonal change. What I found interesting was that it engages kids global study of wildlife migration and seasonal change. This looks to be great for all kids K – 12. You can share your observations with classmates across North America. Students track the coming of spring through the migrations of monarch butterflies, robins, humming birds, whooping cranes, gray whales, bald eagles, and other birds and animals. They can track plant life, changes in sunlight, and other natural events.
