Great - but fix the quesiton on how many miles it is

I can't use the quiz with my child because the great wall of china is way longer than 1,500 miles, but that is what you have in the quiz. Can it be fixed and the app updated?

Excellent learning tool

My 6th grader really enjoyed this app. It was the only thing I didn't have to fight with her to do. I highly recommend it. Bright colors, pan landscapes that make you think you're there and easy, interesting reading. I have bought Ancient Greece for our next unit. I hope it's just as great.
