GeoGuessr: Problem Solving, While Seeing the World

If you live along the East Coast of the United States, you know that we have been hit pretty hard with snow this winter. With all of those delays and school closings, how can we help our students stay sharp? GeoGuessr could be a great game and tool to help students develop higher level thinking and problem solving skills - especially on those shortened days.

How does it work? 

As soon as you play GeoGuessr, you are "dropped" into a random part of the world and you have to guess where you are at. Your only clues are from the landscape you see in the Street View feature of Google Maps. Use the tools on Google Maps to travel the landscape.

When you think you know where you are, you can "make your guess" on the world map that appears on the bottom-right corner of your screen.  The closer you are, the more points you score!
