The learn the states section lets the student see the state on the map and click on it's name, or click on a state when they are presented with the name. There are multiple levels of difficulty and the student can work using all the states or just western, central or eastern regions. As the mouse is rolled over the U.S. map the states highlight to aid in selection.
