What's New in Version 1.11
Bug fixes and iOS 7 compatibility
Perfect way to learn the butterfly lifecycle
In my elementary class we observe the butterfly lifecycle every year and children release the butterflies out once they are ready. For the last 2 years I have been using this app to explain the life cycle to the kids and they have been self learning the topic at home as well. Works out really well. They learn a lot from pictures and videos and the quiz is great as well.
Wonderful app for a wonderful topic!
This app is the kind of app which convinces me that the future of education is on the iPad. The butterfly topic is such an amazing one and this app really nails it.
If your kids need to learn about butterflies or your school is teaching the topic this app covers all aspects of the butterfly life cycle. The photos, videos and the quiz are really amazing. Looking forward to more great topics from Sprout Labs!
