So much fun! I love these quizzes, makes me realize I know nothing about the giant continent of Africa!
The quizzes are so much fun. Even though I love to travel I,am terrible at geography. I have especially learned I know nothing about Africa. Great tool for teaching.
I only got 3 right answers. Lol. And they’re all based on guesses. It’s fun to end the night answering this quiz though.
This was awesome! I also really need to work on my Geography. I only got about 5 right.
My lack of Africa knowledge means only one thing…We must go and explore!
Oops! Seems like I suck at African geography. I only got two right answers and that too were guesses. I should work on my geography 🙂
Fun quiz! Though I quickly realised that I don’t know Africa all that well. Some places I’ve never even heard of.
Oh, wow, I really need to brush up on Africa’s geography. While I do know the countries and I recap them often (I have Pinterest boards with continents and sub-boards with their countries), I found it difficult to pin them on the map.
5/10 Not bad but my Africa geography does need some work as had not heard of some of these countries.
I LOVE this! Firstly, somewhat proud of my results, 6/10 isn’t horrible BUT it also highlighted I have MUCH more to learn! That’s why this was so useful! I’ll have to study my atlas more often and the key takeaway is that I need to travel to Africa more!
Oops I am so weak at African Geography. I was knowing only few countries but it is such a huge and beautiful continent that I have to explore now more.
I am too embarrassed to even share my score – Need to work on my General Knowledge AND Geography 😛 I should plan a trip to Africa soon to know it better 😉
This is wonderful quiz. It made me realize that I know nothing about this giant continent. ????I need to update my geographical knowledge. Should explore more about Africa.
What a great idea. I need to spend more time planning trips to Africa though because it made me realise I don’t know it very well.
