GeoGuessr

GeoGuessr - A geography game which takes you on a journey around the world and challenges your ability to recognize your surroundings. Watch this video of me playing the Daily Challenge. I came in 25th with 12,730 points by using clues to make a guess. Not bad for my first try! With the Pro version, you can play 1 free game a day or pay $1.99 a month to play unlimited games. There is also a Free GeoGuessr version that is only 2D but you can play as often as you like.

What to play BreakoutEDU with the possibility of winning prizes? Go to THIS LINK any weekday at 2 pm. There is no login to play. They will start with 2nd - 4th grade level questions/puzzles and work their way up to harder ones. Each episode is 5-10 minutes and has puzzles focused on different content areas. Parents can play along too! If you win a game, you will be asked to fill out a form and you will be entered into a drawing for prizes which include BreakoutEDU home and school kits. Past Breakout EDU games are also on the website so you can play them afterwards. Good luck and have fun!
