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.

Great way to learn Central America

This is another great geography app from this developer. Clean and clear. Nice to have Central America broken out separately.

Missing Countries

Initially, I thought this app was going to be terrific, since Central America is separate from North American. However, the app is missing several countries, which is disappointing. Such as, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica.
