While this list is definitely last-minute for this year, you might bookmark a few of these resources for next year or later in the year when you get to WWII in your curriculum (I typically covered WWII in April in my curriculum).

Nine Fun and Challenging Geography Games : Free Technology for Teachers

Nine Fun and Challenging Geography Games : Free Technology for Teachers | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

GameOn World is a multiplayer geography game developed by a high school teacher and his student in Portland, Maine. The game is similar in structure to that of Kahoot. In GameOn World the teacher selects a game category (cities, places, and timeline are three of the nine categories) and starts the game. The students join the game by going to GameOn.World and entering a game pin. In the location and timeline games, students answer the questions by moving a placemark on a map or selecting a date on a timeline. In some of the other games students answer by choosing a number on a sliding scale.
