Since I’m slightly obsessed with geography and memorizing states/provinces/capital cities in North America, I decided to finally start learning all of the départements of France. Not just their assigned numbers, but their locations, main cities, and the region to which they belong. The numbers correspond to alphabetical order (somewhat), so it’s not so hard, but there’s just so many of them!
Useful sites for learning the departments (in case anyone is as nerdy as me):
Wikipedia Departments of France – list of numbers, departments, and main cities
Interactive Map of French Departments – roll the cursor over a department to see its number, name, and region
Departments of France Game – I will not stop until I get 100% on this game!
P.S. That last site also has tons of learning games for geography, history, languages, science, etc. My new favorite site!
