Many people think that geography is just knowing the names of countries across the world, but geography is an area of study the covers both the social and natural sciences. Geography is not only the study of places, but the people that inhabit those places. Not to mention the environment found within those places. The best way to sum up what geography is that it is the biology (study of life) of places. Geography is about being a world citizen. It is all about learning more about the planet we inhabit. Did you realize that the United States and Canada share the longest international border of all countries? As fast as our fingernails grow, the continents are moving and shifting. This means that if you came back to Earth a few hundred million years from now, you would barely recognize it because all the continents would be moved around. Another interesting fact is that only about ten percent of Earth's population lives in the Southern Hemisphere. Another population fact, there are more people in the U.S. State of California than all of the country of Canada.
We have a huge catalog of geography worksheets. We start by investigating the names of continents and oceans. We try to offer all types of different ways to prompt your learning of the anatomy of all these places. Besides featuring an answer key for everything, in this section you will find student answer sheets. We will then look at all the countries found within each continent. From there we will break down the more common countries that are studied into states and provinces. Towards the end of this library of over one hundred worksheets you will see that we overlapped a time zone chart on the world’s geography. Let's learn more about the world around us with the help of these map based worksheets.
