You should also check out Destination USA from Mindware. Everyone we have introduced it to loves it and it is traveling across the US every which way as the game board.

It's difficult for a kid to remember the name of all stats. But as you say, I believe that games can easily teach anything. And almost every kid love to play a game, it's great to learn something while enjoying the game.
