Geography Games
Quickly learn to identify country outlines by region by doing preliminary study and then quizzing yourself. A leader board tracks point totals.

10 Ways to Teach About Geography
Excellent NYT presentation about the proper study of geography (hint: maps are only the beginning). Great selection of links to other resources.

National Geographic Society
Remember those ubiquitous stacks of magazines cluttering homes across America? NGS is so much more! A treasure of humanity and testament to the human spirit.

National Geographic Education
Naturally, NGS would produce the very best geography learning resources available online. Make maps, print out study aids, delve into geographic details, more.

National Geographic Bee
Think you have what it takes to be a professional geographer? Working toward becoming a winner in the National Geographic Bee would be a good start.

Stack The Countries
Award-winning game enables memorization of border outlines and basic facts about nations of the world (e.g. language spoken, contiguous countries). Diverting!

Stack The States
This is essentially "Stack the Countries" for the 50 United States of America. Same kind of game, same kind of fun. Also the winner of several awards.
