"Crosscountry USA 2"


Crosscountry USA 2

Crosscountry USA Photo Safari Description

 

This enjoyable game teaches students how to apply geography knowledge in real life by doing things such as planning routes and reading maps as well as trying to maintain a budget. The weather in the game changes so you can find yourself driving through rain or snow. The game also changes from day-time to night-time. The player can also choose to stop at a gas station or go into a diner during the game.

If you liked the original Crosscountry USA, you and your students will love this new, updated version of the program.

Your geography classroom becomes a real American adventure!

Skill Development Includes:

- geographical literacy
- map reading
- decision making
- estimating
- problem solving
- survival math

Students 'drive' an 18-wheel truck around the country picking up and delivering a variety of commodities. As they travel between any of 203 cities, they'll learn valuable skills including problem solving, map reading and decision making. On-screen maps, GPS navigation and a compass allow students to learn directions and plan the most efficient route. Students learn time management, decide when to eat and sleep, and watch road conditions.

Photographs of cities, famous places, and landmarks add a visual dimension to the journey.
