Planet Earth 3D

Screen Shot 2013-02-05 at 2.51.47 PMThis app makes a great resource for classrooms that study any component of planet Earth.  The graphics are visually appealing.  The accompanying texts are brief, yet informative.

The app is divided into 4 sections: Structure, Rotation, Moon, and Habitat.


– Internal Layers: The Crust, Upper Mantle, Lower Mantle, Outer Core, Inner Core

– Atmosphere Layers: Exosphere, Thermosphere, Mesosphere, Stratosphere, Troposphere

– Lands & Seas: All 7 continents and 4 oceans


– Rotation

– Revolution

– Seasons


– Introduction

– Rotation

– Tidal


– Desert

– Fresh water

– Ocean

– Rain forest

– Tundra

– Urban

Background music plays, but you can easily turn it ‘off’.  Also, you do not need an internet connection to  fully use this app.  I highly recommend it for use in science classrooms!
