EDUCATIONAL NOTE

iWorldGeography colors match American Montessori Society classroom materials.

iWorldGeography Series blends self-correcting, child-directed-activity design with Geography curriculum used in Montessori Children's House and Lower Elementary classrooms. Concept and visual design is thoughtfully integrated to supplement existing curriculum and classroom materials. The series was inspired by 3-year's observation in Lexington (MA) Montessori School Children's House classrooms where MyWorld, TenSun's desktop-based version of this series, has been used since 2004.

What's New

Version 1.2.6

Now runs on iOS 11.

Ratings and Reviews

Sound works perfectly.

Lynne Bolduc

South America has always worked perfectly. Most recently, South America was rigorously tested by Apple and sailed through its update to iOS 11.

just want to learn, I recommend that you click/touch "App Support" to contact the developer who immediately responds to all customers who reach out. I'm sorry that you've had trouble. There is sound and it works perfectly.

No sound

The app stated there would be sound and there is not sound to pronounce.

Great App
