Geography: Middle School: Grades 6, 7 and 8 Quizzes

Quizzes make learning fun! There is no quicker way to learn about Geography in Middle School - Grades 6, 7 and 8

Are you really interested in geography or have you always regarded it as something you can manage without? Well here’s something to ponder – whatever your interests in life you almost certainly need to know something about geography…

Interested in football and other sports? You’ll need to find your way to road games – see our map reading quizzes.

Interested in nature? You’ll need to know about wildlife corridors and we have a quiz especially for you.

Only interested in eating and drinking? Surprise, surprise we’ll teach you about over-fishing and where coffee comes from!

There’s more to geography than just practical considerations because we inhabit a truly amazing world. Don’t believe us? Then here for your delectation are 10 fascinating facts:

  1. If you walked at a steady 3 miles per hour, without stopping for breaks or to sleep, it would take you nearly a year to walk around the equator. Always assuming there were foot-bridges across the oceans!
  2. Lake Superior contains enough water to cover the whole of North and South America to a depth of one foot
  3. For every person in the USA there are 4 people in China
  4. The highest temperature recorded on Earth is 136F in Libya and the lowest is -134F in Antarctica
  5. The USA is 75 times bigger than England
  6. The deepest hole ever drilled by man is in Russia and it went down nearly 8 miles. They would need a drill bit 1,000 times that length to get to the other side - only joking, that’s not going to happen any time soon!
  7. It is estimated that Antarctica contains 90% of the fresh water on Earth
  8. There are many mountains that have never been climbed and in jungles there are millions of trees that have never been seen by a man on the ground
  9. If all the world’s population was as densely populated as New York City then every one of us would fit in Texas with a little room to spare!
  10. It is estimated that there are about 8 million different species on Earth and over 80% have yet to be discovered and documented
