The quiz is ideal for a geo challenge between friends and with your family. It can also help you study and prepare for an official Geo Bee contest.

Geography Basics – the Crash Course

In general, we talk about 7 continents in the world – Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, and South America.

Many geographic quizzes will ask you to pinpoint places on the correct continent, so when you want to prepare for a geo challenge, it can be a good idea to work your way around the globe continent by continent.

Learn which the largest countries are on each continent and note what surrounds them. Work your way from the large to the smaller.

Next step is to look at cities. Again, go from larger to smaller in each country. Try to make visual maps to help you remember them.

Then continue with bodies of water, like oceans, gulfs, straits, rivers, and lakes. Go from continent to continent, from larger to smaller.

Then you have the most important mountains and deserts.

Geography is also about the people who lives in all these places. It is about their economy, religion, and things that form their everyday life. It is about climate, weather, and natural resources.

Geography connects to history, biology, science, and more.
