Our Canada Capital Cities App is a fun and easy-to-use tool for learning the names of the 10 Provinces and 3 Territories of Canada along with their capital cities. The program features a Maps section, a Capitals Section, and a Quiz section. The maps section has easy to read maps of the Canada with the province and territory names, and their abbreviations.
The Capitals section has a colorful detailed map for each of the 13 regions including the capital city name and its location within each region. With the display of each map, the name of the region and capital city are narrated for the student to hear the proper pronunciation. To obtain more detailed information about any of the regions, the student only needs to tap the image of that region and they will be directed to a related Wikipedia.com online encyclopedia page.
The Quiz section has a multiple choice quiz for identifying the capital city of each region. If the student selects the wrong answer during the quiz, a message pops up to tell them what the correct answer should have been, thus helping the student to learn. The score is tallied as the student progresses through the quiz. After answering the last question, the student is taken to the results page to see their final score. A report of the results may be emailed from this page for record keeping.
This application is self-contained and does not require an internet connection except for emailing the optional quiz results report or for linking to Wikipedia.com for more detailed information. It is an excellent tool to use by the individual student or for an entire class.
