Learn the U.S. states and capitals in a fun (and funny) way. A full screen clickable map of the U.S. is used to teach names and locations of states and capitals in a variety of ways. When the student completes ten problems they are rewarding with a silly animation using 3D graphics.
The tutorial section helps the student learn where states are on a map and which capitals go with which states.
The learn the states section lets the student see the state on the map and click on it's name, or click on a state when they are presented with the name. There are multiple levels of difficulty and the student can work using all the states or just western, central or eastern regions. As the mouse is rolled over the U.S. map the states highlight to aid in selection.
The learn the capitals section lets the student see the state name and choose it's capital, see the capital name and choose it's state, or see a state on the map and click on the name of it's capital. The last option can be very difficult and is ideal for mastery skills. This section has 15 different learning variations. The capitals section of the program is available in the registered version of the program.
