How I Use It
As mentioned, I don't use this for a teaching tool. However, my third & fourth graders often have very minimal knowledge of the states. I think it is a fun way to get them learning about the states - even recognizing their shapes is a fun step!
My Take
I wouldn't use this app as a teaching tool, but it is great for exposure to the states - mainly their shapes and sizes. My students love the game aspect of stacking the states. Just today we had a discussion about state sizes when one of them asked if they could resize the states! Great learning opportunity!
