Answer questions

Answer questions. But learning geography is more than just putting states in the right places on a map. Stack the States has quizzes every now and then that tests your child's knowledge on their United States geography. Can they get the correct answers about what states border another state? It's a vital bit of information when it comes to geography, and this app makes it fun to learn.

What is it about?

Stack the States lets kids learn about the states and their shapes, capitals, flags, geographical locations, and more. It does so primarily by allowing kids to touch and move animated states on the screen in five mini-games with different objectives: build tall piles of states, tap the locations of states on the map, tap the correct states before they pile up too high, put together adjacent states like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, and match states with their capitals.

For those who...

  • ... want to learn about the 50 states of America in a fun way. ... enjoying playing mini-games with cartoony graphics.

Not for those who...

  • ... don't like playing mini-games. ... are outside the U.S., where a more than basic knowledge of the states is not essential.

Why we love it

The animated states make all the difference in Stack the States. By allowing kids to tap and move them around, the app helps kids learn about the states in a colorful and playful environment. In other words, Stack the States enables children to learn about geographical borders without the boredom.
