The Interactive Globe

Purpose games How can you expect kids to hand in neat, crisp homework when your worksheets are barely readable and look like they’ve been photocopied a dozen times. Try teaching them geography with Purpose Games’ variety of educational interactive games. There are programs for identifying states, capitals, and a variety of country and regional maps. All students do is click on the city, state or country that the program asks for and it lets you know if you’re correct. For the teacher, the game tabulates a percentage of correct answers, and the game keeps track of top scores, which leaves open the possibility of a state capital contest. The best part is that all the games are free.
