WWF Together is an app that takes the user on a guided journey through the lives of several different threatened or endangered species of animal. The user clicks on the animal they want to know more about, and the app provides them with factual information, photos, videos, and interactive components. If they provide their geographic location, the user can also view a global map to see where these animals live in relation to the user and how many are estimated to be left on Earth. They can track their status as well to see whether they are threatened, endangered, etc. The user can also share the animal’s information using a hashtag on their social media platforms, encouraging others to learn more about these creatures as well.
WWF Together is a free-to-use app available now for iOS.
A great way for kids to practice flexibility is learning something about a previously unknown topic. WWF Together features several different animals ranging from Siberian tigers to Monarch butterflies, providing a great range of creatures to research. Once the user has chosen an animal, the activities and information provided are unique to that animal, providing for further opportunities to practice flexibility. Users can use their phones camera to explore a bison’s habitat, track and compare their speed to that of a jaguar, and cut down bamboo to learn facts about a panda’s eating habits. All of these activities allow for the user to try something new, thereby strengthening their flexibility skills.
There are many different animal options on the WWF Together app, but learning about one animal at a time can allow for the user to practice focus. Even though there are several activities to try, if they revolve around the same animal, the user can maintain their attention on learning about one animal before moving on to the next. The activities and facts are short and high interest, allowing for users to practice their focusing skills in short bursts.
