Pocket Zoo HD is a cute app that is designed visually for younger students but has a great deal of information for older students as well. Pocket Zoo HD creates a virtual zoo and by clicking on an animal in the zoo facts about the animal, including, size, habitat, and diet are provided. Pocket Zoo HD also includes hundreds of photos and videos for all the different animals as well.
One of the more exciting and ever changing features of Pocket Zoo HD is that with some of the animals (unfortunately not all) live streaming webcams are available. Students can connect to these streams at any time to watch as the animals go about their lives, and because it’s a live feed, it will always be new content.
There is a moderate cost for Pocket Zoo HD ($2.99 in the Apple App Store at the time of this post), but it should be well worth it, especially for our nature loving students!
