How well do you understand maps and globes? This maps and globes quiz will test your knowledge with some interesting true-false questions. Maps and globes are made by humans to understand the geography of the world with ease and also to facilitate the process of navigation. The quiz is designed for third-grade students with ASD to practice map skills and vocabulary. So, just give your best shot and get the best score.

• 1.

### A map is a picture of a road or street.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement "A map is a picture of a road or street" is incorrect. A map is a visual representation of an area, which can include not only roads and streets but also various other features such as landmarks, rivers, and boundaries. It provides a comprehensive overview of the entire area, not just the roads or streets. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

### If there are two hemispheres on the earth, a hemisphere is half of the earth.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because a hemisphere is defined as half of a sphere. In the context of the earth, it means that if the earth is divided into two equal parts, each part would be considered a hemisphere. Therefore, there are indeed two hemispheres on the earth.

### A map key is a box that tells what the symbols on the map stand for.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because a map key, also known as a legend, provides a clear explanation of the symbols or colors used on a map and their corresponding meanings. It helps users understand the representation of different features, such as roads, landmarks, or bodies of water, making it easier to interpret and navigate the map accurately. Without a map key, the symbols on a map would be confusing and difficult to understand.

### A huge river is also called an ocean.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because a huge river is not called an ocean. While a river can be large in size, it is still distinct from an ocean in terms of characteristics such as depth, salinity, and connection to the sea. Oceans are vast bodies of saltwater, while rivers are freshwater streams that flow into oceans or other bodies of water. Therefore, it is incorrect to refer to a huge river as an ocean.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### The equator is an imaginary line that is halfway between the North and South pole.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The equator is an imaginary line that runs horizontally around the Earth, dividing it into the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. It is located exactly halfway between the North Pole and the South Pole. This means that it is equidistant from both poles and serves as a reference point for measuring latitude. Therefore, the statement that the equator is an imaginary line that is halfway between the North and South pole is true.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### A continent is a large body of water on the earth.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
This statement is false. A continent is not a large body of water, but rather a large landmass that is surrounded by water on all sides. Continents are typically defined by their distinct geological features and are made up of multiple countries and regions.

• 7.

### Globes are better than maps for cities.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
This statement is not accurate as maps are generally considered to be more useful for cities compared to globes. Maps provide a more detailed and precise representation of city streets, landmarks, and other important features. They can be easily updated and customized to show specific information, such as transportation routes and points of interest. On the other hand, globes are three-dimensional representations of the Earth and are better suited for understanding the planet as a whole, rather than specific city details. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Continents are surrounded by water from all sides.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Continents are surrounded by water from all sides because they are large land masses that are completely separated from each other by oceans and seas. The continents are essentially islands, and their boundaries are defined by the bodies of water that surround them. This is evident when looking at a map or globe, where the continents can be seen as distinct land masses surrounded by water. Therefore, the statement "Continents are surrounded by water from all sides" is true.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### The ocean is a large body of salt water.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because the ocean is indeed a large body of salt water. It covers about 71% of the Earth's surface and contains various salts and minerals dissolved in it, giving it its characteristic salinity. The ocean is home to a vast array of marine life and plays a crucial role in regulating the Earth's climate and weather patterns.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Intermediate is the directions that are midway between two cardinal directions - northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The explanation for the given answer is that intermediate directions refer to the directions that are between the four main cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west). These intermediate directions are northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest. Therefore, the statement that intermediate directions are midway between two cardinal directions is true.
