Fun With Geography

I am a huge fan of anything dealing with geography, and I'm loving this National Geographic sponsored site called My Wonderful World that I found recommended on another blog. There is a world geography quiz each day that you can take as well as a game to locate the various countries, continents or states. Having the quiz on a computer makes it more interesting and a great test of geographic knowledge. In a laptop school, taking the geography quiz of the day would be an excellent warm-up, and I'm thinking of using the site with upper grades in the library as a reinforcement of the curriculum.

Wow...I need to freshen my geography skills. I tried one of the little "games". Also, sent to my sister for her girls to check out. Good job Mrs. Librarian.

Love, Mom

Cathy and I just got 2 38"x50" maps of the world and US. Both are mounted on a board and hing in our addition. Pins mark where we've been. It's cool. Yea! Go geography! It's finally cool to know where you are! Go school!
