Do you know Africa?

Do you know Africa? | Mrs. Watson's Class | Scoop.it

Many of Africa’s leaders will be in town next week attending a White House summit. The continent’s land is shared among 49 countries — many of which rarely make U.S. headlines. How familiar are you with Africa’s geography?

This is a good practice.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 5, 9:57 AM

This online quiz tests your ability to locate African countries on the map--a basic skill that isn't 'doing geography' (an age-old lament among geography educators).  Still, it is hard to have an intelligent discussion about the continent if you can't name or locate any places other than Egypt and South Africa.  For some of my favorite online map quiz resources, click here.

Online Quizzes for Regional Geography

Online Quizzes for Regional Geography | Mrs. Watson's Class | Scoop.it

"For Regional Geography, I ask that all my students take an online quizzes before coming to class because it is very difficult to intelligently discuss European issues if you don’t know the countries of Europe, where they are and what other countries are on their borders.  Quizzes and knowing places doesn’t define geography, but if geography were English literature, knowing about places could be described as the alphabet–before you write a sonnet or critique an essay, you better know your ABC’s and basic grammar.  Given that, I like the Lizard Point Geography quizzes, Sheppard Software quizzes and those from Click that ‘Hood; they are simple, straightforward and comprehensive."
