About This Quiz

Put your geography knowledge to the test with this quiz!

Geography is one of the Social Studies, and High School Geography branches away from the United States and explores the Earth's water, landforms, climates and systems. In elementary and middle school, you may remember studying maps of the U.S., and your classroom probably had a globe. In high school, you learned about the connection between history and geography, both man-made and natural (human vs. physical geography). After all, not only has the world changed as it aged, but alao people changed the world's borders.

To call yourself an expert in geography, you'll need to know how to use the tools of geography, including maps and charts; you'll need to know how humans have influenced global culture and economics (human geography); and you'll need to know intricate information about the regions of the world, including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. For you to know all of this, you must have an IQ of more than 130! But don't let us scare you away - try it for yourself and then challenge your friends.

So, get ready to test your geography IQ and explore the world with this fact-filled High School Geography quiz.
