    I flunked, but then I had two girls who wanted out of the bath and a cat that kept jumping on my lap and trying to get to my keyboard.

    I got a 28 before I timed out.

    I don't see any third-graders completing this thing in the time they've alotted. Good luck to you........

    I passed it within the time limit, but if they didn't let you try again I probably would've only gotten around 35 or so. Those New northeast states kick my ass outside of NY, PA, and MA.

    I would like to add that this is an awesome learning tool. I wish I had this back when I was in third grade. After only a third try, I can now knock them all out with ease.

    Did it just fine, within the time limit, no penalties. Come on guys, I can understand world maps, or difficult continents like Africa, but the lower 48? There's no way this should be hard.

    I got them all. Dropping in Delaware was a hassle, though

    Man in 7th grade I wouldve absolutely owned a globe test and its capitals. I think at one time I knew every capital in Africa as well as obscure crap like Fiji and Micronesia. Effing Geography Bee, I was so close to going to nationals...

    I got all the states within time, but I still failed.

    And I wanted a cookie.

    I have a third grader who could probably place 3 or 4 at most. This isn't what they are teaching in the third grade, and I'm glad. Memorizing places on a map isn't what they need to spend their time on at this level.

    I managed to get them all in the time allotted on the first time through, but it was luck that I got New Hampshire and Vermont correct since I often have trouble remembering which is which (even though I used to live in New England).

    I don't know that I could've passed in the third grade, though I recall in the fourth grade having to learn all the state capitals. I assume we learned all the states before that.

    I got them all, without a problem. I'd have a much harder time remembering the capitols. They should have one for countries. I'd do very well with those. I've always loved geography. (doesn't hurt traveling a lot, either!)

    I passed!

    Though Kentucky, Oklohoma, and most of the Mid west states were tough.

    I always though Kentucky and Tim Buck Too were related somehow? I mean who the hell lives in Kentucky?

    I got them all, but Deleware, Vermont and Connecticut gave me trouble on dropping them in.
