Map of the world

Travel Zoo – Map of the World App

This is a great map of the world app that gives children (and adults) the chance to learn quite a bit about the geography of the world. I myself learned about the different seas and oceans, many of which I didn’t know. And although I’ve had many conversations about Europe and WWII, there were many countries I didn’t even know existed. And don’t get me started on how little I knew about the countries in Africa.

The shape of the countries helps the player drag them to the right places even if you don’t know where countries are, giving the player a chance and reducing frustration in the game.  It does time you, so you can take it repeatedly to see if you can beat your time.

This app does NOT give any details about the countries, but is both a great way to learn where countries are and a great conversation starter.

It’s FREE. Check it out.
