I was working on a list of free BrainPOP apps for our sister site, Smart Apps for Android when I realized we didn't have a similar list on this site. The big boss, Ron, has been a HUGE fan of BrainPOP apps since before I joined the staff. These apps offer top-notch educational videos on a variaty of topics including an app for Spanish and one for French. There are now five different FREE apps available and to make it easier for you, I have included them all in this handy post!
I admit, I love doing crafts with my kids. If I can find hands on activities that are also educational, I'm one happy mom. DIY Sun Science offers fun, educational activities for kids that any parent, crafty or not, can put together in minutes. From activities perfect for a rainy day to helping reinforce concepts in a tactile and visual way, DIY Sun Science is a FREE app that kids and parents will both enjoy.
I am truly amazed at how much content is available in this free app!
Bottom Line: Another amazing app from Marco Polo Learning, offering young children the opportunity to explore and change weather. It’s a great example of how kids can play and explore and still learn about weather and its changes. Play with nine different weather types, changing temperature, wind and sun levels, while interacting with cute animal characters.
