A thorough study of mummies would take you not just to Egypt, but all around the world! To see proof of this, take a look at the mummy listat the great site mummytombs.com. For a little fun in Egypt, though, try to guess whose mummy is in the tomb in this "unknown mummy" game.
How well do you know the states? How well do you know the European or African countries? Try the game "STATETRIS" to test your knowledge. It's like the game "Tetris," except it's played with states and countries. When you open the link, choose your location and then choose your level of play (we recommend easy to start). Have fun!
For more map fun, go to Geography Games, and choose games to practice countries or capitals. There's even a game for latitude and longitude.
