Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
The application develops music education, and therefore those facets linked to the arts. The app has a lot of interactivity built into it. Almost anything that you tap or smear will animate beautifully. The attention to details is such an enjoyment to see. It is almost like you're enjoying a high-quality animated short film.
It is interesting to note that each scene has multiple layers and allows multiple animations to happen at the same time. For instance, in Old Mac Donald Had a Farm, you can watch as different sets of animations and illustrations roll in to represent the four seasons. Finally, the app also includes an exciting tree house music studio where you can tap on various animals and items inside the tree house to create your own songs.
