Last month I shared a handful of fun geography games as part of my list of resources for Geography Awareness Week. Where is…? is another good game to add to that list. This game uses a common concept for geography games; the name of a city is presented to the players and they have to click the map to guess where the city is located. Players are given immediate feedback on their accuracy in the form of a measurement, in kilometers, of the distance between their guesses and the correct answers.
Applications for Education
Where is…? offers a practice mode in which points are not recorded. The practice mode is good for students to use to familiarize themselves with world geography before giving the scored rounds a try.
