ALL ABOARD FOR GEOGRAPHY FUN!
"Busy Train" is an interactive storybook with mini-games for kids ages 4 to 8.
The folksy Engineer will take you on a fact-filled train
trip across America, where you can learn about our state
flags, landmarks and even pick up a little trivia along the way.
PLAN YOUR TRIP
Pick your destinations from the map, then hop aboard the Busy Train
and get ready for your journey across the United States.
GET TO KNOW AMERICA
At each stop you’ll see the state
flag, nickname, capital, notable cities, landmarks, monuments, and major crops and industries.
Visit some of our country’s most scenic national parks and monuments, such as Yosemite National Park, the Statue of Liberty, Kennedy Space Center, and more.
Reinforce what you’ve learned as you play mini-games:

LOAD IT UP
Exercise some early science skills by loading cargo onto boxcars and categorizing by size, weight, state
of matter, plants, animals… and more!
CUSTOMIZE YOUR TRAIN
Points earned in the mini-games let you customize your train
with items such as new paint, flag decals, antenna balls, and more.
