For my friends with school-age kids or grandkids, check out US States for Kids - app for the iPad. This is a easy-to-use app that challenges kids to learn the location of the 50 states.
The object of the game is to put all 50 states in the right place and in the fastest time. It has two levels of play: Easy (with state map outlines) and Difficult (without the outlines). Each state pops up one at a time on the screen along with audio pronouncing the name of the state. To play, set the timer and start dragging the states into their correct positions. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle on the iPad.
Start slow and learn the positions of the states; then work up to playing against the clock for best speed. If it gets too hard, you can use hints to help.
US States for Kids is fun AND educational. 5 STARS!
