State Puzzles


There are a lot of state quizzes out there (click and scroll down to Social Studies) for students, but Quiz Factors’ States of America has a few things no others do.

  • It provides clear directions, oriented toward the challenge behind quizzes
  • It’s ad-minimal
  • I’s elegant. It makes you want to play!

These are fun puzzles to embed into class blogs, websites, wikis. What a great way to share homework with students–click the link, play the game.

Being a blog, I can’t embed anything with frames. You can click here to see it embedded into my WP.ORG side. Looks good!

Or click here, grab the code for yourself and embed away.
