This is a wonderful app

As an entomology student, I am thoroughly impressed with this app! So glad I purchased the set. It is beautifully designed, educational, relaxing, and a great tool for anyone interested in the wonderful world of insects. The photos and video clips are crystal clear and high quality. Quizzes and fun facts are an added bonus! Thanks to the developers for this app!

A Must For Insect Lovers

A child 5-10 yrs old would love this app! Click on search button to view all the bugs by clicking the ALL button on the left side of the screen or type in the name of the insect and the picture pops up. Each insect has a printed description. There are a variety of ways to navigate through the activities which will definitely appeal to the young scientist, e.g. Insect story & insect trivia (very cool), observation journal, & the quiz (love the quiz, especially for children who need help focusing on details in a sentence, e.g. child has to choose the correct photo... " Which insect has black and yellow legs?") The ease of viewing beautiful videos & photos is flawless. It is also easy to move from one screen to another. Learn details about 33 different insects (mainly beetles, butterflies, moths, firefly, cicadas & stink bugs), but many of the favorites are not in this series, e.g. grasshopper, flies, bees, dragonfly, ladybugs, mosquitoes. An explanation of how to use this app would be helpful, so parents and teachers......you may need to be there as a guide. This is a great resource for any classroom and well worth .99 cents! Looking forward to the next series.

Overall Good App

The app Meet the Insects: Forest Edition is an amazing app with a wealth of knowledge to help children learn all about the different insects they might meet when they are outside on a walk or even when on a camping trip. This is a great app for any science teacher, as well as any parent trying to get their children accustomed to what they may meet outside the front door to avoid any potential anxiety. I know a lot of children are afraid of flies for an example, so it would help with getting this information out there and real for them.
The price is amazing for information you will receive to help your children learn and grow. I also love that the children can write their own journal entries about what they have learned and this is a great reinforcement in and outside of school. It gives them important knowledge of bugs as well as a use of critical English Language Arts Skills. I think this would be good for children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old and can be used at each age point in a variety of different ways, learning new facts and information to expand your knowledge over the years.
