PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This trivia competition is a fun introductory lesson for a World Geography course. Some basic geographic concepts are demonstrated in an entertaining way. However, the bulk of the lesson is designed to expose students to dissonant information about life in other countries, the relative position of the United States in the world, or enduring global challenges like piracy and slavery. Although the comparative components emphasize contrast with the United States, the lesson could be easily adapted for students in any other nation (like Canada or Australia) by substituting appropriate data from the CIA World Factbook. The lesson author, Shawneen Morrison, uses the activity in the competitive group format described. However, the lesson could also be used as an individual competition. Extensive instructor background notes are included. So, if you highlight the points you would like to have emphasized, the lesson can be used as an engaging substitute teacher lesson plan.

Note: This is the same product sold in my store as the End of Year World Geography Trivia Competition. After receiving feedback from users that used the product both times of year, I decided to list it both ways. Enjoy!
