I try very hard not to focus on such subject-specific apps as they have such limited value in the classroom, but this is such a beautifully designed app about animals that I couldn’t resist.

Just to give you an idea,I have taken some screenshots:

Here is how they introduce the animals they highlight:

As well as a 3D world you can spin and tap on a dot to find out about an animal:

The adjective that pops up in my mind for this app is…soothing.It is free and really worth a look!
