Thirteen multiple choice questions all based on using maps. These questions are aligned to the New York State Regents Exam for Global History, but they can be used in any social studies curriculum. The repetitive nature of the questions, as well as the specific ordering of them, is meant to help students develop confidence answering multiple choice questions based on maps.
This quiz is part of my global history skills series.
