National Geographic Explorer for Schools
This app brings National Geographic into the classroom through the use of iPads. This is a free app that gives students an interactive issue of National Geographic explorer every month of the school year. The best part of this app is not that it is free, but that it has applications and suggestions as to how to link this text to common core and state social studies and science standards.
How it work:
Students open the app to find this month's issue of National Geographic Explorer. The text is clickable, and has the functionality to be read aloud to the students. There are also various activities that allow the child to interact with the pictures and images throughout the issue.
