Build Planet Earth!

This online interactive world geography game hosted by National Geographic features two playing modes:
— Build Planet Earth
— Map Countries and Cities

In Build Planet Earth, players first place the north pole and the south pole, then are given the continents and oceans to place. You then have a choice to print your map or to continue by adding mountain ranges and major rivers. Once again, you have the option to print your map after all elements are added.

In Map Countries and Cities, players place countries on the globe (which has continents in place already), then are given capital cities that go with the set of countries just placed. Locations of these cities need not be exact — simply drop it on the country itself.
