Kids Map for iPad and Android Tablets
While there are an abundance of childrenâ€™s apps for learning the ABCâ€™s and 123â€™s, there seem to be less quality options for studying up on geography. Kids Map offers a colorful, straightforward approach to learning the lay of the United States. Presented with an outline of the United States, users are then given colorful state shapes, along with a name, and required to drag them to the correct location. With voice overs and simple controls, this is a cool way for kids with access to an iPad or Android tablet to learn about geography!
