Geography Webquest: True Size of the World

Please double check the website before buying! The website was down for a week, but seems to be working great as of 9/17/2018

This webquest uses a very student friendly website that allows students to compare the true size of different countries. Students really enjoy this website and it helps them understand the true size of 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 countries and states are located to be able to compare sizes. Students just need to type in the name to find the country or state, 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 countries and states.

The webquest contains 28 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 25 to 45 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!
