*** 20,000 downloads in December 2013! See why schools and parents prefer our Continents app! ***
Learn the names and locations of all the world continents and oceans with this simple, yet, effective method! A knowledge of Montessori is not required to use this app. It is designed for everyone!
Start with the Learning Activity, where children can explore where the continents and oceans appear on the globe, as well as, see and hear the name of each one.
Then, move on to the interactive Puzzle Maps of which there are three types:
1. Assemble the puzzle map by looking for the continent or ocean that is blinking on the map. When they touch the correct piece it will move into position onto the map and its name will be heard aloud.
2. Assemble the puzzle map by looking for the continent or ocean that corresponds to the name shown at the top of the screen. For children who cannot read, simply touch the name to hear it out loud so they know which one to look for.
3. Assemble the puzzle maps in any order by dragging the pieces into position on the map. The piece will snap into position and its name will be heard aloud.
This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children! You will appreciate how the color schemes and design of the Puzzle Maps are close replicas to the Montessori classroom materials, making this app a nice extension to classroom work.
