A fun way to learn the names and locations of all 50 states and their capitals.
➤ Quiz yourself on both states and capitals.
➤ Easy Mode for beginners.
➤ Spoken pronunciation of each state and capital.
➤ Facts about each state including capital city, flag, bird, statehood and more.
➤ Settings screen to allow students to concentrate on specific states.
➤ Zoom function for north east region
Three modes to choose from for both states and capitals:
• Learn Mode allows you to tap and highlight each state to see its name or capital and hear it spoken. Launch the information panel to view additional facts about each state, including: capital city, nickname, tree and more.
• Game Mode uses both text and audio prompts to see how many states or capitals you can identify. There are two difficulty settings: Easy and Hard. Easy setting does not have a time restriction, and indicates states that have already been found or are not being played. The Easy setting is great for young learners. Hard setting pits you against the clock to see how may states you can identify in one minute. Earn bonus points for any time remaining on the clock. Leader board keeps track of high scores.
• Test Mode is where you can measure your progress similar to how you may be tested in the classroom. Tap each state in any order you choose, and type its name at the prompt. There is no time restriction for Test Mode.
Engaging and fun application designed by a classroom teacher. Game Mode can be addictive, allowing you to unwittingly learn all 50 states in just a few hours.
What's New in Version 3.1
➤ Non-timed Game setting for young learners.
Really fun! For Adults too!
I used to really enjoy my kids' leapfrog United States geography game, and was looking for something like it, so I could toss that old toy! This is similar but way better, and with lots more options. I love that you can tap the states and learn first, then graduate to the game, but with unlimited time, if you want it that way. And THEN move on to the timed race when you are ready. Well worth the price of admission.
Needs some work
My son uses this app to learn all of his states. So far it has worked well. However now he is to the point where he needs to study all 50 at once and when we try to get into game mode it closes the app down. Please please fix this!!! I love that he can play games to learn the things he needs to know. This app has been great up until this point. We need game mode back though!!
This is exactly what my 5th grader needed. There are lots of options for practice and testing. I love that there is even a place to learn facts about each state. We even competed with each other to see who could get the best score in the game. Totally worth the money!!
