Recommended App: Civil War by KIDS DISCOVER

Civil War

Recently, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) came out with their 25 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning for 2014.  The apps were chosen because they foster innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration.

Civil War by KIDS DISCOVER is one such app.  The app allows students to “explore and interact with the different facets of the Civil War,” meeting the key players, visiting the battlefields, and reading nonfiction passages that provide background information.

The app is recommended for grades 3-8 and is available on iOS only (starting at $1.99).  Check out this video to see the app in action:
