I developed this app for – and together with my little daughter (now 10 years), when she was to learn the
neighbouring countries of Germany, their capitals, sights, etc. in the 4th grade.
Europa meistern is divided into several, consecutive steps, so that the most important information is first practised, later assigned and can be played at the end with the learned information. In a new exercise (from V 1.0.0) You can now also learn the location, position and size of the countries on the map.
In an additional part, which we have baptized "knowledge", various additional information about each country is listed. This information is divided into small groups and can be obscured for learning.
All 47 countries located on the continent of Europe are listed in this app. In the settings it is possible to choose which of these countries should be practised and whether the capital or the flag should be learned (keyword: fun with flags!).
With this entertaining and informative laying game app, the basic knowledge of Europe is trained in a playful way. Whether capital cities or flags – the different areas can be practised according to your wishes. Either as a mere assignment of the capital cities or flags to the right country or as a concentration-enhancing, where the matching pairs have to be found.
Of course, both the number of card pairs and the number of players variable. On request, the cards are read aloud and the time period for which cards are uncovered is also adjustable. The level of difficulty of the app increases with the number of card pairs.
Strong motivation for Europe-know-how
Alone against the time or as a challenge against an opponent – who needs the least moves to find the matching pairs? Who collects the most stars and is in the end European champion?
The visual presentation of the playing cards, the acoustic success signals, the sympathetic reading voice (daughters), the game variations, the pedagogically demanding content and the strict reduction to relevant content make the app a valuable Learning method.
