Use this interactive geography quiz as an independent review activity or for Geography Bee preparation. Select from a variety of topics and regions of the world. Some of the advertising is rather annoying, but the quizzes themselves are great.

tag(s): continents (50), countries (77), quiz (85), quizzes (97)

In the Classroom

Use the "celebrate Birthdays" to create a "this day in history" display for the classroom. The other sections of the website would be excellent to review for any subject, so find the appropriate subject and have students open the site on individual computers. In groups of 2-3, have students compete to see who can get the highest score! Be sure to post the site on your class webpage, allowing students to use the site for review before a summative assessment.

This well-organized, searchable site, created and maintained by the Internet Scout Project of the University of Wisconsin, contains a wealth of useful, interactive, and motivating resources for teachers, students and parents. Currently, the site focuses on French, Spanish, and Japanese, although German and Italian resources can be found by following links to many of the recommended sites. Content levels range from beginner to advanced. Links to interactive flash cards, quizzes, and games that strengthen vocabulary and language comprehension are among the high points of this site. Many of the resources provide independent practice, authentic exposure, and opportunities for cultural exploration. Becoming a member is free and enables the site to personalize your visit by preferred language. A new "Word of the Day" is a homepage feature, as are daily updates of the newest additions to the site.

This is a nice collection of Java applets which provide a variety of practice and quiz material on French and French culture. The contents could be used throughout the year as you cover specific material. From Quia.

tag(s): france (40), french (88)

In the Classroom

This site provides a wealth of review links, activities and lesson plans that would assist any French teacher greatly! Some of the review games would make excellent learning centers, so save those as a favorite on a classroom computer and allow students to use them towards the end of a unit. There are also some quizzes that could easily be used for practice on the interactive whiteboard or projector.
