How is your geography knowledge? Were you taught it in school?
How would you rate your geography knowledge? What kinds of things do you know and what kinds of things don’t you know? Some of you may know that my geography knowledge is kind of exceptional…I won my middle school’s Geography Bee three years in a row and I’d be willing to bet I could label all the countries of the world, their capitals, all the counties of California and Nevada and their county seats, Australian and Canadian states and provinces and their capitals, and a bunch of other crap.
Were you taught geography in school? We did a bunch of U.S. geography in 8th and 11th grade. We did European countries and capitals in 10th grade. We did African countries in 9th grade. Other than that, not a whole lot. I taught myself most of what I know from atlases, encyclopedias, and educational placemats. :P
