What you should know:
The perfect backseat travel app has finally arrived! This addictive vacation-themed app is jam-packed with features, rewards and activities that make learning all about US geography and facts fun for all kids.
The high-quality interface uses super 1960’s road trip graphics that pay homage to the heyday of American car culture, complete with neon signs and old-fashioned fuel pumps. Kids start their expedition by picking a car and putting the virtual pedal to the metal. Moving from state to state, players answer questions to earn “cash” that can be exchanged for fuel to keep cars rolling; if you run out of gas, you’re stuck! Geography Drive USA asks little learners all about the states, such as questions about city IDs, fast state facts and information about landscape and geological features. Questions are text-based, requiring reading fluency. Children reap rewards in the form of car upgrades, trophies and other virtual knick-knacks.
Between quizzes on the road, stopping at the garage and the state “Visitor Center” that tracks the trip, kids have plenty of fun interactivity to keep them amused for the duration of a road trip. Another bonus? Parents don’t have to feel bad about passing this app to the backseat—it’s intuitive and free of ads and in-app purchases.
