Get Your Geography On

May 26, 2011

Americans are notoriously ignorant when it comes to U.S. Geography (yours truly included). I came across this great website that tests your knowledge of where the 50 states reside. It’s called “Know Your States”. It displays each state, one at a time, at the top. Your job is to drag and drop each state outline into the location where it belongs. It takes some time to get through all 50 states, but it’s a good learning experience for kids and adults. Give it a try and see how you score.  This resembles assembling a jigsaw puzzle without a picture of the finished product. Each time you play, the states are displayed in a different order. I got 47 right out of 50 the first time and 43 right the second time. Here’s the link: http://jimspages.com/States.htm

    So true! We are such a large area though. I mean the entire USA. This is great.

    That was fun. I got 43 out of 50. I was very distracted by the shapes that I kept seeing. I never knew Mass. was shaped like a gun.
