History Hero is a great app for teaching younger students history

Transient

History Hero is an app designed for students aged between 4 and 10 to teach them about some of the worlds most significant historical locations.

Set in the style of a game, a group of villains called 'the erasers' are set to remove all records of history and it is up to you to travel the world, learn some history and in doing so erase 'the erasers.'

Set in a similar style to "Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?" History Hero will definitely appeal to younger students and does a pretty good job of informing students about the where and why of 40 significant historical locations.  It is available on iOS and Android and you can find out more here.
