Science and reading come together in aging but effective platform
Pros: Varied activities and adaptive instruction help students comprehend scientific texts.
Cons: Parts of the platform are showing their age, and it can get repetitive; there's a big focus on earning (and spending) money and tokens.
Bottom Line: There's not much out there that focuses specifically on reading science texts, so if your students can get past the dated design this could be a handy tool to turn to.
