Creating our own Minibeasts app!

In Year 1, our latest topic is Minibeasts. As a class, the children have turned all their knowledge into their own app!

We started by splitting the class into groups of 3 and assigning them a minibeast to research. We tried to focus on three questions - 
  • What does it look like?
  • What does it eat?
  • Where does it live?
The children then had to use the iPads to research and try to find answers to the questions. They used the app Shadow Puppets Edu to create a short video to share their learning. 

Each group then worked alongside me to add their video into the app. The app was created in the brilliant Touch App Creator.
