Ages 2 & Up. This app has been developed to include activities for children from preschool & kindergarten ages up to elementary school, to learn about the United States of America! Learn facts about each state, use the famous Montessori Geography Puzzle Maps, color in the states like a coloring book, and do "research" via the Mobile Montessori Worksheets!
Preschool children who cannot read yet can still learn to identify all fifty states by use of the integrated audio and graphics. Older children can practice doing research using the Worksheets activity. This app was first developed in 2010 and we haven't stopped adding to it! A special thanks to all the schools that continue to use our app in your classrooms!
Montessori Geography Activities:
- Learn to identify the shape, name and location of each state

Nice app. One major drawback is that the order to match states is hard-coded. This leads to memorization of position on screen as opposed to shape recognition. Would be great if it had a 'random' toggle somewhere to make matching more challenging. Maybe an optional timer? I want to up the challenge so that I want to come back and keep playing it! Also, I can't find the developer online to provide feedback. Where's the website?
Great apps for any Montessorian
As a certified Montessori toddler, early childhood, and lower elementary teacher I have to say I absolutely LOVE these apps. The subtle music and sounds, and the calmness of the voices fits right into the Montessori style of teaching. Not only do I use all of the apps for my own son at home, but I also recommend them to parents who ask for "homework", or who want to supplement their children's Montessori education further.
I understand that some people find the apps too boring for their children, or feel as if their children aren't "stimulated" enough. Montessori education stimulates children by giving them accurate facts to work with, not by overloading their senses with bright colors and animated pictures, or loud music and sounds.
These apps are a great addition to the Montessori curriculum, presenting children with the original tools but in a more modern medium.
Great app with zero distractions!
I wanted to actually buy a map of the United States for my kids room so they learn the real stuff. But then I thought I'd give a shot with the app. (I usually research for hours before downloading apps for my kids!). I am glad I got it. It is a clean and simple app that does not have a 100 hidden games my kids can play (they already have several of those in the other apps!). So when my kids are at it, I know for sure they are doing some value add! (Also, I had some glitch with the billing and they promptly resolved it.)
I certainly recommend this and their other map/ geography apps, if you mean for kids to really learn the real stuff, in a fun way.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
