In this activity, students check their knowledge of geography by playing a game similar to Tetris. Students are able to choose a "puzzle map" of a continent, country, state, or province. Some examples of the locations offered include Africa, USA, Italy, Europe, France, Germany, Brazil, Japan, South Carolina, and many others. After selecting the puzzle map location, students can choose a difficulty level of easy, medium, or difficult. The easy level has the shape labeled and a non-rotating piece. The medium level offers the name of the state or country, but the piece rotates in a circle. The difficult level offers no names and a rotating puzzle piece. In this game, shapes fall from the top of the screen, students have to maneuver the shape into the correct location on the continent before it reaches the bottom. Watch out - this site is addictive!

In the Classroom

This is a great geography review tool. Demonstrate the maps that coordinate with your curriculum on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students work individually or in pairs on laptops or a classroom computer cluster.
