How I Use It
I use this app differently with different students. I use it as a review for students who are fairly familiar with the states. I use it as an introduction for my special needs students (although I always have them work with a peer tutor while using this app. Flinging Flat Stanley is fun! The word scramble does do much for my students. For many of them, I keep a list of the states in alphabetical order near by to support them. The key facts are a great introduction or review to the states.
My Take
This is a fun app that works well for building background or review of the location of our 50 states and a few interesting facts. I would like to see it offer students an opportunity to include facts that they have learned through visiting the states or other forms of research. The app does not allow for higher level thinking, just basic recall.
