FREE iPad App For Teaching United States Geography!


I haven’t posted very many free apps on here, but there are so many great free ones out there that I’m going to start posting about them regularly!

There’s a relatively new app for the iPad called Puzzleography and I’m totally in love with it!  My friend Amber over at Free Range Eggheads developed the app (which, oh my goodness, I can’t even imagine WRITING an app!) and it is, in my opinion, every parent’s dream Geography app (that is, if you dream about Geography apps). 🙂

With the full Puzzleography version (which is priced at $2.99) you get detailed puzzle maps of the Continents, USA (the States), North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Australia, Oceania, Asia, and even the Solar System (it’s the hidden bonus level)!  You can choose either to play the game with the state/country SHAPES (which is easier for younger children since they only have to match the shape) or with the state/country NAMES (which is perfect for older elementary and up).

And I just have to say that it’s even challenging enough for adults!  Do you know all of the island sets in Oceania?  Or where all of the countries are located in Asia or Africa? Yeah, I didn’t think so!  But wouldn’t it be cool to know??

For those of you who homeschool and have an iPad, $2.99 is certainly much less expensive than buying any other type of world geography curriculum!

And if you want to try out one of the puzzles before buying the full app, you can get the Puzzleography LITE version for FREE that just teaches all of the states in America and where they go.  The free app also has 3 levels (just like the full version)…

  • Level 1: Says the state’s name and the state lights up on the map.  Then you drag the state shape to the piece that lights up (GREAT for very young kids!)
  • Level 2: Says the state’s name and you have to drag the state shape to the matching place on the map (still a pretty easy matching game).
  • Level 3: Says the state’s name and only shows you the NAME of the state (not the shape) and you have to drag it to the correct location.

Here are the links for both the free and paid version:

Puzzleography FULL Version – $2.99 (All of the continents, countries, states of the USA, and more)
Puzzleography LITE Version –  FREE (USA states only)
