How I Use It
I use this program as a warm-up or an end of period activity to turn those moments when students attention is lingering. It will always bring them back into the fold and get them ready for the next classroom activity. Also, I find students wanting to purchase this app for their own devices.
My Take
I started using this program, after previously using Stack the States, when I taught U.S. geography. Now that I teach world geography, I thought this would be a nice transition over to the country version. Students always get excited when I hook up my iPad to the projector and we play a round of Stack the Countries. It is one of those apps where students don't even realize they are learning as they play the game. It also motivates students to get the app for themselves and get better at their geography skills. It is a nice supplement to learning.
