Barefoot World AtlasYoung children have a difficult time envisioning the large extent of our world. Our first graders are learning about different regions of the world, but it's hard to see how the separate parts relate to the whole. This app provides a wonderful opportunity to let children explore the globe.

I know several classrooms that have enjoyed using this app with first graders exploring the regions of the world. I look forward to exploring other apps like it, helping children explore the world around us!
