“So much information in one amazing app, if you want to increase your knowledge of Africa and the animals that live there then this is the app for you, A4cwsn”

Introducing the first in a series of apps that will help children and adults learn about the animals of each continent and help raise awareness of endangered species!

This app features the animals of Africa. You will learn where each animal lives on the African continent, several facts about each animal, and their current conservation status.

Lesson #1 contains the Information Center with all the facts:

Touch an animal in the photo-strip to change the featured animal on the page. Touch the Map button to see the animal’s habitat highlighted on the map. Touch the Speaker button to hear the correct pronunciation of the animal name. Touch the Definition button to see and hear a detailed description of the animal as well as the Animal Facts box, containing dimensions, weight and conservation information. A list of Conservation definitions can be seen by touching the button on the top bar.

In Lessons #2 & #3 assemble the African Habitat maps by finding the animal prompted by the shown habitat or name. This activity expands the Continent Box activity found in the Montessori classrooms

In the first habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the name shown at the top, as well as, the habitat shown on the map. When they touch the correct animal card, a representative animal shape will transfer to the map as the name of the animal is heard aloud.

In the second habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the shown habitat only! This is more challenging, however, you will be pleasantly surprised how fast you will learn to memorize the animal habitats!

In Lesson #4 drag and place the animal puzzle pieces to the map. The locations correspond to their habitat and the name of the animal is heard aloud when it is placed correctly.

This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children!

We sincerely thank you for your downloads and suggestions!

This app begins a new series of Geography Apps for us! We sincerely thank you for your support of our other Montessori applications and hope you enjoy this one!
