Engaging and addictive game that helps students with their world map skills
Community Review for Stack the Countries
Overall, this is a great tool students can use to learn about basic facts (capital, language, location) about various countries in the world. It held individual student attention, but is limited in this sense that it is not a creation app. However, it keeps record of student progress and performance, so that is a very nice, individualized, feature. Helped students explore and invigorate an otherwise dull task of learning capitals/languages/locations of countries.
How I Use It
I allowed students to play the game as part of a stations activity. Students were put into pairs at the station and played against each other in terms of precision and score. It was a fun and engaging way to learn capitals/languages/locations of countries, that otherwise would have been boring.
