A life cycle is a period involving different stages of a species from birth through reproduction. As kids grow, they need to know and understand how life starts, morphs through various stages into a adult and how life starts all over again. Various processes also exist in nature, that are also called life cycles since they follow a systematic flow through stages at regular intervals.
This Life Cycles App is created by a team of high school students, educators, and parents in Texas. It is easy to use, intuitive and most importantly, provides educational content with great illustrations and narrations for students, schools and montessori's.
Appropriate for children ages 2-10+.
Following life cycles are covered in this app at this moment:
- Frog Life Cycle

+ Colourful illustrations with highlights at each stage (tap/swipe to go to next stage)

+ Narrations (by a elementary school teacher) per lifecycle stage

Good information here, but it basically consists of pictures of cycles with a person reading fairly dry text. My kid loves science, as do I, but we both found this dull. My kid can do science far above grade level with an engaging text or interface. This is neither. It is like a textbook read aloud.
A perfect app for 1st Graders. Simple graphics, clear diagram and the talk is a bonus because kids learn by imitation.
This is a great app for small kids to comprehend but question time only has questions about the frog life cycle. I think this app should seriously be updated
