Visual Geography is a nice resource for K-12 Social Studies teachers. Visual Geography provides images and information sorted by continent, country, and geographic theme. Visual Geography offers geography quizzes associated with each continent and country. The quizzes are available in four levels from “image only” through “advanced.” Visual Geography also offers a nice comparison feature that students can use to compare information about different continents and countries.
