Using colorful maps, students are asked to identify countries, states, cities, and more by clicking on the appropriate location or answer. Points are earned with each correct answer and it keeps track of how many tries it took to find the right place. There is a “give up?” option which, when selected, fills in all of the information on the map. If your student is new to the subject, we suggest selecting that option at the beginning to use as a study tool before playing the game. When the student thinks that they are ready, they can select the “play again” option. 


Game topics include:

  • Flags
  • And more

This site provides excellent geography practice and is simple to navigate and play the games.
