Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can assign students a dinosaur that is included in this app to research. Students can first view images of the dinosaur and hear the sounds it makes in this app. Next, students can search the Internet for videos and information about the dinosaur. Students can then compose a report or create a presentation about the dinosaur that includes information such as: (1) where the dinosaur’s natural habitat is, (2) the types of food it eats, (3) its natural predators, and (4) its current population, among others. Students can write their report using the UX Documents, Office Offline, or Hanx Writer apps. Students can create a presentation using the FlowVella, Prezi, or PowerPoint apps.
  2. Teachers can assign students a dinosaur to view and hear using this app. Next, teachers can have students play a game of charades in which they have to act out their dinosaur.
  3. After viewing the “Tour” option in this app, teachers can assign each student a dinosaur and, together, the students can make a collage. As a requirement, each student must include his or her dinosaur and two pieces of scenery. Once finished, teachers can hang the collage in their classroom.
