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.
NOVA Elements made the list. Students can explore the interactive periodic table, build elements, play a game, and watch NOVA’s ‘Hunting the Elements’ videos. AASL says,”Students can use the touch screen features to build their own models of atoms and molecules. … Watch out, though – if you make a mistake the atom will explode!”
The app is recommended for grades 6-12 and is available for free on iOS. You can check out this informational video:
