Description: MarcoPolo Weather is a wonderful app that can be used to help teach science content pertaining to weather. This app allows student to experiment with different elements such as temperature, wind, and percipitation and discover their effect on the weather conditions. It is designed for the IPad, IPod, and IPhone users. In my classroom I would use this app in a center setting to aid to my students understanding of weather.
How it works: Students are able to manipulate the weather conditions by choosing if it is sunny, partly cloudy, rainy, etc. They then can adjust the speed of the wind and the temperate. These choices immediately affect the "wacky" character chosen by the students. They can dress these characters based of the weather conditions they have created.
