State Bingo and Road Trip US, by Niyaa Apps, is totally educational, exceptionally engaging and aesthetically pleasing. It also completely encompasses Common Core Standards and differentiated modes of play. This app has so much to offer, learning-wise, and is so much FUN! Our students had a difficult time leaving this app to work on math, science or any other content on the iPad. In fact, this is the most requested app in the classroom right now!
From the early developmental stages right through to beta-testing, TWA has been in on the ground-floor in helping guide this app along. We may be slightly biased in thinking that this is one of the best apps out there, but our students are not! Yes, this app has it all, including “Pep” the car. Buckle up and take a ride to discover amazing US destinations. Travel to random destinations or choose to drive along the historic Lewis and Clark trail. Enjoy the entertaining animations as Pep cheers you along. When you win the game you get to send states to statehood.
State Bingo Game – three levels of difficulty, answer state related questions, solve state riddles and navigate a beautifully illustrated map of the USA. Challenge yourself with the harder levels by answering questions based on state shapes.
Road Trip US game – three levels of game play, choose from five different routes, travel east, travel west and reach the destination state before all your tires go flat.
