Product Description
Geography Webquest: True Size of the USA

This webquest uses a very student friendly website that allows students to compare the true size of different states and countries. Students really enjoy this website and it helps them understand the true size of states and countries around the world. Please check out the website by clicking on the link below:

Click here to view the website.

Students will need to have a basic understanding of where states and countries are located to be able to compare sizes. Students just need to type in the name to find the state or country, but they still need to know the general areas they are comparing. I suggest that the teacher check out the website so they become familiar with how it works. The teacher might want to pair stronger geography students with students who have difficulties. The goal of this webquest is to help students understand geography misconceptions caused by flat maps and understand the real sizes of different states and countries.

The webquest contains 24 questions and is a great way to introduce a geography unit or to have your students go into more depth on a geographic topic. An answer sheet is not included, since all of the questions are open-ended. A QR code is included along with the traditional website link. The webquest will take most students at least 20 to 40 minutes to complete depending on age. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.

I would like to thank Hidesy's Clipart for the wonderful clip art!
