Overview - UNITED STATES SOFTWARE LAB PACK (5 CDS)
Invite students to explore the United States through its regions, cities, states, capitals, and landmarks with this fun game. U.S. Software, by PCI’s Janie Hohlt, complements Janie Haugen’s United States Worksheets and United States Game. Software can be used with either product or alone.
Game opens to an animation and song, and then the student chooses a unit from a menu.
• Puzzle Play Student chooses a U.S. region from the map and arranges the puzzle-piece states in their correct spaces.
• Name It Student chooses from “State Names,” “State Capitals,” “Major Cities,” “State Landmarks,” and “State Abbreviations.” Then, he or she answers a question from the category.
• Travel the U.S. Student must travel through the states that will allow him or her to move from a starting state to a final destination, by clicking on adjoining states and correctly identifying the states “en route.”
• State Search Student selects a region and identifies the states in that region. When the state is identified correctly, its puzzle piece will show. The goal is to identify all fifty states of the U.S. and to complete the entire puzzle.
Several teacher options are available, depending on the level of the student and timing of game play, allowing for tutorials or two or three answer choices.
