Map Trek- Ancient World is an excellent app to go along with any ancient history curriculum or Bible study. I found this app to be informative and interesting. By providing the text boxes and quizzes, it makes this app more than just an atlas. I believe that any time you can get the kids truly interested in geography, you have a winning teaching aid. The pictures and additional information provide this piece to the puzzle.

Have you ever been teaching a history lesson when one of your children pipes up with a question. "Mom, is Carthage a city in Oregon or some other country?" Oh dear, you think to yourself and then calmly explain, "Honey, first of all, Oregon is a state, not a country. And Carthage no longer exists, but I think it was located on the northern tip of Africa across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy." After receiving two or more questions along this vein, you realize that you need some better resources.

Actually, you only need ONE!

Ancient World

Map Trek: Ancient World mobile application is a historical atlas and geography encyclopedia in one. Map Trek allows you to teach geography alongside history. This is a resource that any parent or student can use with brilliant success, even if you don't remember a thing from your history or geography classes in school.


Grab your children by the hand. It's time to explore our world throughout history. And what better place to start than with the ancient time period.
