US Geography quiz

It’s quite common for Europeans to joke about how unaware most Americans are of world geography and to forget that the USA is more like a continent than a country. We may know where America is, but how many Europeans could pinpoint South Dakota on a map?

This jigsaw from Maps.com gives you a chance to demonstrate your knowledge of the US States, and it’s quite a good way to learn them, too.

A couple of hints:

  • This is a Flash application, and most Flash players will allow you to zoom in if you click the right mouse button. It can be useful when you’re trying to position Delaware!
  • If you’re not familiar with the abbreviations for the States, this page can help.

They have more free stuff here.
