World Continents and Oceans - Geography by Mobile Montessori

Rantek Inc.

Ages 2 & Up. The iPad version of this app has helped thousands of children around the world learn to identify the continents and oceans. We are excited to bring it to Apple TV! When it comes to geography, this app is just the start, and we invite you to give our unique method a try. You won't be disappointed!

Learn the names and locations of all the world continents and oceans with this simple, yet, effective method! A knowledge of Montessori is not required to use this app. It is designed for everyone!

Start with the Learning Activity, where children can explore where the continents and oceans appear on the globe, as well as, see and hear the name of each one.

Then, move on to the interactive Puzzle Maps of which there are two types:

1. Assemble the puzzle map by looking for the continent or ocean that is blinking on the map. When they touch the correct piece it will move into position onto the map and its name will be heard aloud.

2. Assemble the puzzle map by looking for the continent or ocean that corresponds to the name shown at the top of the screen. For children who cannot read, simply touch the name to hear it out loud so they know which one to look for.

This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children! You will appreciate how the color schemes and design of the Puzzle Maps are close replicas to the Montessori classroom materials, making this app a nice extension to classroom work.

Rantek Inc.

Ages 2 & up. Learn about the 50 states with this time-tested method by Mobile Montessori!

This simple, three step process to learn geography is being used by schools around the world. Here's how it works:

1. In the Learning Center, children can browse through the states, learning to pronounce each name, seeing the state shapes and location, and get to listen to a brief history and description of each state.

2. In the first Puzzle Map, children will enjoy assembling the map by searching for the state that matches the blinking shape on the map. As each state is placed, they will hear the name pronounced aloud.

3. The second Puzzle Map is the most challenging. Search for the state that matches the name displayed at the top. The name will be heard aloud so young children who cannot read will know which state to search for.

We've published apps using this method for over five years with fantastic feedback from both parents and teachers.

Thanks for supporting Mobile Montessori's educational apps.
