OUTSIDE THE BOX:
There's a new free online geography game called Worldle (clearly riffing on the popular word game, Wordle). Worldle shows one image per day of a country (shape only). Users have six tries to guess the country; each guess generates feedback on distance (in km) and approximate direction to the correct answer. Playing with a world map on hand instead of just working from memory or guessing, though, creates a lot more learning: by consulting a map between guesses, students of geography develop a more refined sense of distance as well as country positions and shapes. worldle.teuteuf.fr/
