SimpleSort Continents – A Geography Game
SimpleSort: Continents is one of two nice geography apps from Kids and Beyond. SimpleSort: Continents a game in which students review physical and political geography facts then test their knowledge by dragging objects to the continents that they are representative of. For example, if students see an American Buffalo they need to drag it to North America. The concept and the visuals are not unique, but SimpleSort: Continents makes up for that shortcoming by providing clear narration for each part of the app. From the introductory screen through the end of every game students will never be stuck wondering what to do next. Students can tap on any object they see in the app to hear some information about the object. For example, if a student taps on a picture of the Galapagos Islands they’ll hear a short bit of information about them.
Some students may benefit from using the Map My Globe app. Map My Globe is a very simple puzzle application on which students drag continents and oceans into their proper places. The names of each continent and ocean is read to the students.
