UPDATE: This app is no longer available in the app store.  In the meantime check out this great map app!

A great game for getting students excited about United States geography is the ESPN Map Madness app. Using clues like team logos and home courts, this app asks you to pinpoint on a map the location of professional and college, football and basketball teams. Players are awarded points for their speed and accuracy. It’s a great alternative to straightforward geography practice. A little prior knowledge about popular sports teams can go a long way!

Check out my common core aligned lesson plan using maps on iPads in the classroom!

… you’re awarded points for your answer.
