Stack the States™

Price: iPhone/iPad - Paid

Teacher Overview

Stack the States is a good tool for teachers to use with students to help them memorize the names of U.S. states and capitals. It works well with reluctant learners who may be motivated by mixing those need-to-know facts with more interesting trivia and fast-paced gameplay. The states become animated characters, with eyes that follow your motions, and because they're so adorable, they'll inspire some kids to play more.

Developer Description

Kids can learn to identify states and state locations with Stack the States. They can also learn the state capitals, mottos, flags, abbreviations, and nicknames through a series of mini-games. Stack the States offers kids an engaging way to learn geography details in a fun experience they can't get with traditional flash cards. The app turns states into cute cartoon-like characters with large popping eyes and uses a fun physics based game to encourage children to get to know them and their locations on the map.
Stack the States asks trivia questions about a state, or asks kids to identify the shape of the state. When kids answer correctly they'll earn that state to add to their platform. The goal is to stack as many states on the platform as necessary to reach a goal line without the stack tipping over. When kids reach the goal, their reward is a state to add to their collection. As the collection grows, kids earn bonus games.
Stack the States Lite is a terrific free version of an app that provides a lot of the content available in the full version.
