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.
