Where in the world is Waldo? Okay, let’s say he’s in the thriving metropolis of Thimphu. Uh, well, where’s that? Oh, it’s the capital of Bhutan. Really? Um, where’s Bhutan? It’s in Asia. You DO know where Asia is, don’t you?
Depending on your age, the answer is very likely “No.”
I have to admit, as a child, I never did like geography. I can remember learning about maps, climates, some stuff about oceans and coastlines, a little bit on volcanoes and glaciers, various landscapes, a little bit about culture here and there, and of course the names of all 50 states.
For the most part, it was rote memorization and didn’t engage the interest of a math nerd such as myself.
But even with my laissez-faire approach back then to the subject, I can still name all 50 states (and when I was young, all the capital cities). As a child, I could list out all the nations in South America. I could even name the territories and provinces of Canada.
