Where In The World?

The Arab League demanded that Syria end the violence toward its people.

Palestine bid UNESCO for full membership, UNESCO said yes and the U.S. cut funding to UNESCO.

These are headlines that CNN was publishing today. How well do you know this region of the world or any of the impact of these newsworthy events on our lives?


If you are up for a really good challenge, try to name the countries in this geography game:

Map the Middle East

Viaggiatore and I have used it several times to learn and remember the geography in this area of the world.
I only wish they had map games like this for the whole world as well as one for the better known astronomical bodies of our universe.  Wouldn't that be a fun learning tool!

Good luck with it!

Lots of fun----but humiliating!

Miss Molly,

Not humilliating at all... I didn't get it right the first (several) times but I practice often and so now I'm much better at it.

;D

- that's a world map quiz. It's tough! But I got it after the 104th try.

Sporcle.com is full of delights

I'm ashamed to admit that I know very little about the geography of the Middle East, and have never been there. This is a deficiency I should remedy because it's one of the most important areas of the world, perhaps THE most important, in terms of the future of this planet. (And that is a scary thought.)

I was fairly unaware also, dearest Hearts, but playing with these games is a great learning tool...

;D
