In Sweden we have the same discussion about geography in school. It´s easy to learn fact about countries but not so easy to develop the spatial thinking skills.

Alex Trebek explains the importnace of geography. Its not all about memorizing where things are, its understanding how and why location has such an impact on history, economy and politics.

This is what ive been saying forever! Schools are leaving Geography out! Lets bring out some fun exciting Geography lessons (e.g. Geocaching, Find the box, geography posters, water testing, daily weather checks, even as simple as what to wear today for K-2nd.) Geography is coming back in Mrs. Jessica's Class ASAP!
