Ratings and Reviews

Excellent

Directress11

I have observed my students use this app in my classes, and find that they enjoy learning and reviewing the continents with this media. Students are attracted to learn the continents due to the simplicity, the beauty, the audio, and work of learning the shapes and locations of the continents. An excellent way to explore the globe with your children and students. A highly recommend the download.

Simple, but good!

My five-year-old learned all the continents in no time at all by the activities in this app. Especially useful is the mnemonic song included, sung by a child!

The Perfect Montessori Lesson

This App is a wonderful tool for teaching/learning Geography in a very concrete way. It's beautifully designed to match the Montessori curriculum. My kids love it!
If you're a Montessori teacher, you'll notice that it follows the Three-Period Lesson.
