Can You Pass this Geography for Beginners Quiz?


Geography is the study of physical features of the Earth and its atmosphere as well as human activity because it affects these things. Geographers also study the spread of populations and resources, land use, and industries. Through geography, you can see how objects have changed and how they came to be what they are today. Geographers have two primary fields; human and physical.

Its through this school of knowledge that we can begin to better understand our planet earth and how people affect the planet. Think you've got what it takes to beat a grade schooler at geography? It may be a surprise to find out what you still know.

Did you know?

Did you know the Earth has four layers?

Yes, that is right, our Earth is more than water and dirt layers! From the outside to the inside we have a crust, mantle, the outer core, and the inner core. The crust, not a pizza crust and certainly not as delicious, is made from a huge variety of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. There are two types of crust for our Earth; continental and oceanic. The continental crust is usually 20 to 30 miles thick and made of lightly dense rocks. The oceanic crust is 3 to 6 miles thick and is made of diabase, basalt, and gabbro. Both of which float on the mantle. Now, the mantle is Earth's silicate rocky shell that has a thickness of 1,793 miles that encloses the core. It also makes up 84% of Earth's volume. The cores are two parts; outer and inner. The outer core is a fluid layer that is approximately 1,400 miles thick and is made of iron and nickel. According to estimates, the outer core can range 4,940 to 7,640°F in the out region, but as it nears the inner core, it gets hotter, around 6,740 to 13,490°F. The inner core, comprised of iron and nickel as well, is a solid 760 miles wide ball that sits in the center. The inner core is known to be at least 9,800°F. It is said that the inner core solidified 0.5 to 2 billion years ago from a fully molten core. All of this is our beloved blue and green Earth aged at 4.5 billion years old.
