Take a Break - Environmental Quiz

What is your environmental IQ? Take the quiz today - then challenge your friends, classmates, or co-workers to try their hand as well.

This tool has been found to be extremely useful in stimulating discussion about forest and environmental trends. It is a short environmental quiz that was developed at the University of Minnesota in 1991. Focusing on topics from world and U.S. population to raw material
consumption trends, forest growth and harvest, and paper recycling, the quiz actively engages those who participate in filing it out, stimulates comparison of answers and interaction among participants after the quiz is completed, and provides an entrée to informal discussion and further questions as correct answers are shared.

Over 10,000 college and high school students, boy scouts, general audiences of adults, forest industry employees, and even community and legislative leaders have taken the quiz over the past 18 years. Now available on-line as an interactive tool, the quiz is easier than ever
to use. Those who take the online version receive immediate feedback upon completion. The environmental quiz and an associated answer sheet are also available in the form of pdf files for download and printing.

So what are you waiting for? Take the quiz today and see what you know!

I got a B when I took the quiz - How did you do?
