Make Family Roadtrips More Educational With This Fun Geography App

As you prepare for the yearly drive home for the holidays, you might want to consider taking Geography Drive USA, a fun kid-oriented app now available for iPAD. It’s like digital LIFE with upgradable automobiles and a twist of USA geography trivia. It’s perfect for families because the app can support up to three wee players per car.

The app is intended for children who are reading on their own – so they can go to the “Visitor Center” and learn about state trivia using digital flashcards before proceeding onto some of the games. Rewards come in game cash that can help players upgrade to fancier cars, but be careful, because it also has to pay for gas!

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • The shapes, capitals, nicknames, postal abbreviations, flags, key symbols and more for all 50 U.S. states.
  • National rivers, mountains, parks and time zones, important trails and railroads, and major U.S. cities and attractions
  • Important landmarks, movements and key historical events
