As previously stated, I teach 2nd grade. In the last few months, I have compiled a list of geography facts I was unaware of until recently.
I'm sure you will find them educationally edifying as well.
Here are a list of places that are IN the United States.
1. North America... all of it.
4. Asia... all of it, but specifically India and China.
5. The Pacific Ocean. (Maybe like a lake?)
Here are a list of places that countries.
4. New York
Facts I learned in the last 1/2 hour:
Mozart was born in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Really, my kids are exceptionally bright, and we have managed to get a handle on most of our geographical issues. But I don't think this is a subject where we have much room to slack off either.
