Learn the names, shapes, location, and animals of each state through puzzles, challenges, and tracing exercises with this educational app for iPhone and iPad.

Based on the proven methodology of Montessori.


• To identify all 50 states in the United States

Intro to United States, from the creators of Intro to Math and Intro to Letters, includes the following activities in a universal app specially designed for the iPad and iPhone 6 and 6+:

In a series of challenging activities, we learn the names of the states, finding their location on the map.

Using the puzzle map, we work to develop name recognition, spatial relationship, and geographical location.

Put your knowledge to the test, with a full scale, interactive puzzle map of the United States.

Tapping through the various animals of each state, we come to identify their unique characteristics with stunning illustrations by Alyssa Nassner.

In a series of engaging activities, we match the animals to their associated states, through this matching exercise.

Through an engaging, interactive tracing exercise, we focus on the shapes of the states.

Definitely taught me the states, but a few improvements needed.

This app was a great way to learn the fifty American states, but a few things could be changed to make the experience better. If anyone has the few dollars to spare and an interest in memorizing the states, this is a good app to consider downloading. I know it's a newly released app and has some things to work out, which is why I'm leaving this review. First of all, I don't know why the age range is so specific and so low. This app can really be used by anyone with the passion to learn the states. Some of the content I feel like was added just to add more content (the native animals to each state, which really wasn't necessary). The different levels were a nice way to cover over all 50 states at the right pace, which is something I really enjoyed and knew was a nice touch. Maybe some award (for the kids)-- or really just a blank map quiz over all states would be good to have after all content has been completed. I like this app and will be keeping it. It did teach me the fifty states very easily, but more improvements and additional content can and should be added. I recommend the app!
