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 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....
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?
