Are you *really* smarter than a fifth grader?

It’s been at least a few years since most of us sat through a geography class. LizardPoint—an addictive site with multiple mind-bending map quizzes —might illuminate just how much knowledge you’ve lost over the years.

The site presents a series of blank maps and asks you to identify various place names by clicking on them. There are 37 ways to test yourself, from the easy (yes, we can identify all the continents and oceans!) to the incredibly challenging (good luck on Russia). So as you are hunting to find all the different provinces and territories in Canada (who knew?), rest assured that you aren’t just wasting time—you’re learning, too.
