Hurrah for provinces! I'm also in BC and could sketch a reasonable outline.
I would not trust my face with the graham cracker challenge, however.

I live in a province as well -- Ontario Canada. It is a basic geometric shape that I had better be able to sketch!

oh, you betcha!
There was a pizza place we went to regularly as kids that had a map of the US on it, but no state names. We got really good at naming all the states just by location/shape. All those tiny ones in the northeast can be difficult! And those squares in the mid west - you have to know the surrounding states.
I am pretty sure I can't draw or nibble an outline of my state, but I'm good with that.

I was referring to the graham cracker nibble-art... I don't know how a person would nibble down the gap between the mitt and thumb...! Then again, probably easier than doing the coastline of Alaska... or Hawaii....

I moved from Michigan 4 years ago and everyone can draw a mitten !! ( as well as a rectangle )

More impressive if you live in Michigan... less so if you live in North Dakota... lol....

I can do you one better. It's a game I invented...and have shared with various Cub Scout/church groups I've been involved with.
I can NIBBLE the shape of my state, using either graham cracker (better) or Saltine cracker (tougher) as my sculpting media.
The winner got a couple Hershey bars and a small bag of marshmellows and the remaining graham cracker. It was a big hit with the Cub Scout crowd.
The key is not just nibbling. But scraping and shaving with the edge of teeth as well. I happen to be really good at this game and have more artistic nibbling skills than I do drawing skills.
Geography, I loved it in elementary school and was one of the few students that knew how to draw the outline (geographical) and/or recognize the shape of just about any state in the union. State flags, too!
Draw your state then do a Google search for a picture of your state.....how close were you?
