Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

American States and Capitals helps kids, parents, and students of all ages learn about the states of the United States with a simple touch! Using an intuitive, colorful, map-based design, learners master the key facts and stats of each state by simply touching it. This app makes it fun and easy to learn the state capitals, nicknames, official birds and flowers, and more. Learners can choose between learning about the states, viewing a zoomable map, or taking a quiz to test their knowledge. In all cases, instruction is provided in a fun, easy to use, color-rich visual format utilizing an intuitive touch interface. Just touch a state to learn more about it, pinch and zoom the map to see more details, or touch an answer to move through the quiz. The app also comes with integrated access to the americanstatesandcapitals.com companion website which is regularly updated with new information, fun facts, and other posts about each state in the United States!

Designed by educators for students of all ages, American States and Capitals is a fun, interactive way to develop foundational geography knowledge about the United States.

Geography: The application supports the development of strong geography skills through its map-based interface and state graphics. Learners select a state by taping it on a map of the United States. This trains and reinforces the states location within the U.S. for the learner. Once on a state screen, the state shape is presented on screen along with key data about the state. The visual reinforcement of the states shape aids in locating the state on a larger map.
Capitals: Each state capital is clearly listed and called out showing its physical location in the state.
State Symbols: Full information about official birds, flowers, and other wildlife is included on each state page.
History: Historical and other key facts including state mottos and nicknames for the state are also presented on the state pages.
Learning Games: Four learning games aid in content retention while adding some fun! The games use a dynamic quiz question engine to randomize the order and frequency of questions in each learning game. Learners are never presented with the same game order twice which aids in testing how well the learner has retained the information while also creating a fun, unique experience each time the game is played.

    Great learning app

    This app is colorful, intuitive, and straightforward. My kids (10 and 12) both like it and have expanded their geography knowledge with it. I showed it to one of their teachers and now she wants it to use in class!

    Excellant

    This is perfect for anyone who wants to learn the capitols of states and to test yourself on them. Great for school kids ans adults too. I have never been able to get all the capitols right and I am a grandma! My husband has also teased me for years about this and now I can study, test myself with the Quiz that comes with it and will see just how smart HE is with the Quiz!! Love it and would recommend it to anyone who is in doubt about how much they know!!

    Disappointing

    This would be so much better if it tested you on the states, capitals and facts. I am kicking myself for not reading the reviews prior to buying it!
