INTRO TO GEOGRAPHY - NORTH AMERICA introduces kids to maps of North America in a concise, structured way that can be both informative and limiting. The Montessori method does introduce kids to world geography at a young age, but because the visuals in these loosely Montessori-inspired activities include only maps, country names, and flags, this app is probably best suited for kids in mid- to upper-elementary grades.

If you're looking for an app to help kids memorize the names and locations of North American countries, this is an excellent option. This is not the app to choose, however, if you're looking for detailed information about those countries; it doesn't include statistics or facts about population, topography, capital city, culture, or climate. Kids' learning experience would be greatly improved with the inclusion of some photos and a bit of information about the life in each country as well as more interactivity and some hands-on extension activity ideas. As it stands, Intro to Geography - North America is a very narrowly focused (but effective) geography app.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
