Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 3, 7:11 PM

Google has just released a new game called Smarty Pins: Putting Trivia on the Map. It uses Google maps and allows you to pick a category and then pin the map with the correct answer (as in location). The closer you get to the correct location, the more "miles" you have. You can gain miles by answering quickly, but the clock ticks down.
What are the topics?

Featured topics on this day included March Madness and World Cup Trivia. The other topics to choose from are:

* Arts and Culture

* Science and Geography

* Sports and Games

* Entertainment

* History and Current Events

For students who like trivia this would be a good game. It might also be used as a classroom activity with groups playing when you need a break.
