This second quiz also asks states and capitals, but includes more
complicated questions involving the cardinal directions [North, South,
East, West] and which direction something is in relation to another
place. It also asks about the Great lakes and the Mississippi
River, the surrounding oceans, Mexico and Canada (all of which are
shown, with names, on the lower map). This quiz makes the student
take what they know and use that knowledge to figure out the answers to
the questions. There are no questions that cannot be figured out
with the Cardinal directions and the bodies of water that are labeled on
the lower map.
Geography is not just places, but where a place is in relation to other
places, and why it matters.
