Tetris for Geography: United States, Europe and Africa Versions of Statetris

Here's another teacher tech article for you.

This won't surprise my non-U.S. friends - we Americans stink at geography - especially beyond the U.S. I for one need some practice on the Africa and even the Europe versions. Matter of fact, I would guess many of my American readers would even have some trouble with the Canadian and Mexico versions (if there were these versions) of this type of game.
