With the advent of smart devices, educational apps for smart learning are actively being developed, but the existing native apps run only on specific devices and are not compatible with other devices. Webapp, a new app development method, which is written using HTML5, supports a cross-platform. In this study, a Webapp for learning about levers as mentioned in elementary school textbooks was developed using HTML5. The proposed Webapp was tested by a group of incumbent expert elementary school teachers, revealing that the proposed contents and Webapp offer high educational value.
