Geography ranks alongside music and acting as a school subject increasingly subject to attacks and cuts as schools focus more and more on teaching to tests in areas like history, English, science, and math. Geography, in case your school didn't have it at all, is the study of the physical features of the Earth, how that relates to human activity, and to a lesser extent, the study of the atmosphere. Geography classes would cover everything from rock formations to roads to countries. Geography tests would ask about capitals, both foreign and domestic, and the strange and wonderful sights in the desolate regions of the planet, where ice, water, stone, and mud combine to form the basis for unique forms of life.
Do you feel your school neglected this subject? How's your geographic knowledge when it comes to the human element, like the locations of famous cities or roads? Can you name the important straits that make major trade routes possible? How up are you on the terraforming of islands in the South China Sea? Knowing what we do about the educational systems of each state, and the geography of each state, we think we can figure out where you live based on your geographical knowledge. We can even narrow it down to the state! Give it a try!
