Product Support

The Advanced Scholarís US Capitals is a solid program with a clear and attainable mission. Children will learn U.S. geography and state capitals by diligently using the six different facets of the program. The program is set up to teach geography and capitals in a game show manner, which kept SuperKids' young users interested and intellectually involved in the program.

Educational Value
The Advanced Scholarís US Capitals is founded on educational benefits. Users can 'Visit Each State' where they can view the state map and the flag. In this section of the program they can learn the capital name, state history, and state facts. At the 'U.S. Map' users can click on a state for the name of that state and state capital. Users can also click on 'Multiple Choice,' 'Fill in the Blank,' and 'Match the State,' where they can learn and practice state capital knowledge. 'Locate the State' reinforces geography skills. These sections will teach children the programís objectives in a positive and encouraging manner.

Kid Appeal
Kids will enjoy this program because they learn so much valuable information while they have a lot of fun. It is perfect for the child who enjoys learning classroom material outside of the classroom as well the kid who likes or needs supplements to classroom lessons. Our third grade tester would not leave the computer until she matched all the states with their capitals in 'Match the State!'

Ease of Use / Install
Use of this program was self-explanatory. Children will have no problem making their way around this program efficiently and effectively.

Best for... / Bottom-Line
This program will teach basic U.S. geography and state capitals in a clear, concise, and fun format. It does the job it claims with the help of an interested and willing user.
