Research About Animals with WWF Together App

What is WWF Together?

The World Wildlife Fund, a nature conservation organization, has created an iOS app that lets students learn interactively about different endangered animals (rhino, whale, giant panda, jaguar, marine turtle, elephant, polar bear, bison, tiger, shark, snow leopard, and gorilla).

Implementation Example:

3rd Grade Animal Unit (Life Sciences)

This app would be a great research tool for 3rd grade students to learn about the physical and behavioral adaptions animals make to better survive in their environments (CA Science Contant Standard 3.0).

Adaptations in physical structure or behavior may improve an organism’s chance for survival.
