A new survey shows young Americans have what can only be described as shoddy geography skills, with six out of 10 unable to locate Iraq on a map and almost half incapable of pointing to the state of Mississippi.
The National Geographic Society has released the results of the survey to coincide with a campaign to improve "geographic literacy". Central to the campaign is a website at www.Mywonderfulworld.org which contains suggestions for outdoor family activities, links to geography games and classroom materials.
