Study Games (modified versions):


Lizard Point - It's just like having someone quiz you at home.

Jetpunk -- This is a timed Europe quiz. 

Sporcle - Lots of great geography games, but spelling counts.

Sheppard Software - This is a really fun site, and there are different levels. You can make it harder or easier, depending on what you are ready for.

Traveler IQ - This one is a lot of fun, but be ready, because it moves fast! It's more like a game than a study tool. At the end, you can see your traveler I.Q. -- over 100 is great! On the bottom, you can choose a specific region to focus on, so you can zoom in on one of the places we are studying.  Note that this game needs flash.

Map Puzzles -  This is a map puzzle site, just like the one we have on the school computer. It's one of the best for quizzing yourself!

Enchanted Learning - Lots of great maps to print!

Stack the Countries is a fun app that you can play on an iPod, iPhone, iPad, or other such device. There's a free version you can download (with parent permission, of course).
