Map Practice is a free website or game which lets you practice country positions on world map. How many times has it happened that someone asked you to point out a country on world map and you didn’t know where to start? Even sometimes kids ask you randomly about some country on the map and not knowing makes you feel bad. Sometimes we have a general idea where a country could be, but we are never to sure.
This game can definitely improve your general knowledge as well as world geography. They say that “practice makes perfect”, well that is what exactly this map practice app does. It helps you remember where a country is by practicing it again and again.
Students will find this tool quiet helpful, and so will the teachers. Let’s look at this fun app/game below.

After playing this game I realized my lack of knowledge about countries and their positions on the world map. It was an eye opener, that there are so many popular countries that I could not place on the map. I for one definitely need this game to practice and learn more country positions on world map. You all should also give it a try.
