At the 2007 Miss Teen USA Pageant, Miss Teen South Carolina was asked why one fifth of Americans can’t locate the USA on a world map. She quickly became the viral laughingstock of the Internet when she replied, “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps, and I believe that our education like such as South Africa, and the Iraq, everywhere like, such as, and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., or should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for our children.”

Perhaps if Miss Teen South Carolina had grown up with maps, globes, and geography puzzles, she would have been better prepared for her pageant interview question. Whether or not your child has pageant aspirations, it is important for every child to develop geography skills.
