World Geography Games

Ideal for social studies classrooms or educational screen time at home, World Geography Games challenges visitors to test their knowledge on a variety of place-based topics, from locating countries on a map to matching countries with their flag. The site also has several topography games, quizzing users on mountain ranges, rivers, and volcanoes, among other features. Games are organized by geographic region, and collectively the site includes information about "all 193 member states of the United Nations and the two non-member permanent observer states of the UN," as well as many non-sovereign territories. This gives readers an opportunity to refresh or gain knowledge on all of the continents, as well as the "layers of the earth and atmosphere." The site is managed by EastDock Media, based in the Netherlands. The information used to create these games was primarily derived from Wikipedia and the CIA World Factbook, with some additional data from the Smithsonian Institute's Global Volcanism Program.
