Geography Counts

A recent Facebook post shows a video of people being asked to locate the country of South Korea on a map. The people shown in the video are unable to locate the country.

What’s most surprising is that when they are asked to guess where South Korea is, they try to locate it in such places as Canada, South America, Australia, and Europe.

Basic literacy in the twenty-first century includes the ability to locate countries in the news on a map.

Here are some maps to help you learn where South Korea and other countries are.
