What is the state capital of North Dakota? Who wrote the national anthem? What is the Chattanooga Choo-Choo? USA Explorer is a fun way to learn some facts about the country. It is suited to five- to seven-year-olds, with its bright colors and simple memory tasks. It does not test analytical skills.
The program lets kids deliver a package to Joe, a wanderer who is traveling the USA. You learn all kinds of facts as you track his next destination. There are also printable coloring maps and tools to create your own weather reports.
A bright map highlighting major features of the country makes the screen visually pleasing. Click on an icon and a pop-up box gives you the significance of that place or event. Instructions to the activities are clear and easy to follow.
