Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This application helps students connect to the Social Studies content that they are about to learn through fun interactive games. The games are designed to get students warmed up and ready to learn.
For each chapter, students can play a mini-game: "Say What?" or "Clues to the Past" that has them interact with Virginia’s Essential Questions. When they complete all the topics, students unlock a bonus game: "Whacky History" or "History Hunter" that reinforces the concepts introduced in each chapter.

Good at what it does
This app did what it was supposed to do. Was I blown away--no. But it was solid and effective.
Good tool for teaching
This is a very good teaching device. I have tried it with some of my students and they seem to like the interactive part of it. It helps some of my lower level students access the material. My school actually uses a different textbook, but this can easily be adapted to any textbook. Only complaint, no volume 2 yet.
