    Default Got Some Spare Time

    The Sunday Chicago Tribune had its annual Geography Challenge, this year XIX. I got all of the World heritage Sites in the Americas correct. Some I knew, most I had to use the map and pictures.

    Matching 6 of 10 Should have done better after teaching explorers all those years.
    Multiple Choice 70%
    Weather Conditions 100%
    Teacher's Challenge 90%
    Midwest Match 3 of 8--And I live here. These were T-O-U-G-H!!! Talk about your obscure stuff.
    Strange Shapes 2 of 8--Hate these maps
    Worldscape 80%

    You can take it at

    Or search Chicago Tribune Geography XIX Challenge.

    Let me know how you did.

    Default same quiz?

    The link you provided isn't working, but doing a search I found what I think was the right place, but they didn't line up with yours exactly.

    My results were

    World Heritage - 100%, with a few educated guesses

    Explorers - 70% (although I protest that a couple I said South America, and the answer was Amazon River, or answered Canada, and Nova Scotia was the right answer)

    Extremes - 50% (although again, I protest that I said Canada was home to the Hemispher's tallest building, they said US/Sears Tower. The CN Tower isn't a building now?)

    Weather - 100%, this one was really easy actually.

    Teachers Challenge - 70%

    True/False - 70%

  3. Default

    World Heritage: 100%
    Explorers: 50%
    Extremes: 50%
    Weather: 90%
    Teachers Challenge: 70%
    True or False: 80%

    Flubbed up the explorers and extremes. Some were so obvious I can't believe I doubted myself and picked a wrong answer thinking it was a trick question.

    Oh well
