Seterra Geography Program

http://www.wartoft.nu/software/seterra/

Seterra is a freeware program that can be downloaded free of charge. This program requires Windows 95 or Windows NT (or better). The current version (3.0) was released in December 2006. Seterra is a wonderful program. Sometimes the best things in life are free!

One of my home schooling friends sent me the link to this wonderful program. It has 70 different exercises for learning parts of the world. It is simple, yet colorful and very addictive (even for the grown-ups).

Some of the exercises include: American state capitals, parts of the world, world flags, countries of the world, and much more.

This is a fun and motivating way to learn about countries, capitals, flags and cities in Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, North and South America using outline map exercises and multiple choice quizzes.

Seterra is available in several different languages: Danish, Dutch, English, German, French, Italian, Spanish or Swedish.

Each exercise has a list of the top ten high scores to watch your own progress or perhaps have a healthy competition between family members. It includes a timer to see how fast you complete each exercise.

I have never had so much fun learning geography!! My children are 6 and 9 years old and have been playing this program for less than a week. My nine year old son gets so excited and runs to tell me when he has gotten 100% on one of the exercises. My six year old is hooked. It is wonderful to see the excitement of learning in your children.

I would recommend this computer program for anyone. It is an excellent resource to add to your history and/or geography curriculum if you are a teacher or home schooling parent. It would also be a great help for a student who may be struggling in school or with geography. I’m sure I have yet to see all the benefits of this program. Seterra is a keeper and will stay with us throughout my children’s education.
