Map of US

On my way across the United States by Dr. Julie Rubinacci



Learn U.S. Geography with MORE of your Brain!

Burk the turkey needs a little extra help with the Fifty States. Travel with him and we will light up different parts of your brain with music, words, and active images. Learning is always free, and sales from supplemental materials like handouts benefit Ruby's Rescues, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping orphaned, sick, and senior/special needs animals in Atlanta.


Meaningful pictures move through the occipital lobe and are noted by the temporal lobe!


Mnemonic devices activate your temporal lobe and frontal cortex to help you remember!


Movement within the Powerpoint Presentation activates the motor cortex in your brain!


Watching meaningful gestures lights up the posterior temporal cortex in your brain!

Learn for free, and then help me save lives!
