Stack The Countries (best educational Android apps for kids)


Did you see the opening ceremony of the Winter Games? I love seeing all the colorful flags and uniforms. Some countries I have never heard of, however! This is the app to remedy that. By the same developer who brought you Stack The States, Stack The Countries is another great geography app that will help kids remember what shape countries are, and where they are located in the world. A bit like a virtual pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, this is pin-the-country-on-the-continent, except children are allowed to have their eyes open. Get it while it is free on Amazon today!

Available in English, Spanish and French, Stack The Countries is a useful app for many classrooms around the world. Children learn the locations of countries by using interactive maps or flashcards. The interactive map shows a continent with all the countries colored differently. Tapping on a country will give some information such as the name of the country, the capital, the official language and the bordering countries. The flashcards provide all this information and more including a flag, major cities and well known landmarks. Once students feel confident about their knowledge of countries, they can play a game to test their knowledge.

Multiple profiles can be created, and so progress tracked as children are awarded countries for correct answers while playing the games. The idea of the app is to collect enough countries, and stack them high enough on the pedestal that they reach the checkered line and so move up a level. The trick is to choose a continent that has large countries, because then you can reach the line more quickly!

The faces on the countries give geography a bit of personality and kids will love watching the expressions as they pile up the countries tetris-style. Teachers and homeschoolers will appreciate this value-for-money app on their tablets, and everyone will love saving a couple of dollars by downloading it now. What are you waiting for?
