Again as a request from JD... ;)

And because I'm interested: I'm planning on doing a survey here in Israel about NJ... how much the average Israeli knows about New Jersey. I haven't started yet, I'm making a list of questions and would like your help. :) I have three till now:

1) Where is the Statue of Liberty?
2) What is New Jersey?
3) Where is New Jersey located?

Thanks. :)

Here's one:

4) How do New Jersey and Israel compare in area and population?*

* answer: They are remarkably close in both categories: Both are slightly over 8,000 square miles in area (about 20,700 sq kilometers). New Jersey has about 8,698,000 people to Israel's 7,026,000.

One question that could be asked is , what state is Ellis Island in ? We know that one now thanks to Gov. Whitmans victory over n.y. in the Supreme Court .:D You could also ask what state had the most battles fought in it during the Revolutionary War and than you can point out AMERICAS INDEPENDENCE WAS WON IN N.J. !

Most of these facts come from NJ's state web site. (http://www.state.nj.us/njfacts/njfacts.htm)
State bird: The Eastern Goldfinch
State tree: The official state tree is the red oak, Quercus borealis maxima.
State Flower: The Common Violet (Viola sororia)
State Insect: The honey bee, apis mellifera.
State Animal: Horse (Equus caballus)


You should take a look and see which facts would be more appropriate for your survey.

For an international crowd, I would not expect them to knwo our state symbols. :) I think knowing the history and location and some landmark events in NJ is the most we can hope for. Even New Jerseyans don't know the symbols.

Ellis Island is much like Statue of Liberty though, isn't it? Or am I mistaken..? There's Liberty island somewhere in there too... :confused:

About the Revolutionary War... we don't even learn it in school. :( I really think you'd have close to 0% if you ask such a question. :D


And I agree with JD, Mithrandir: I doubt anyone would know the states even have any symbols. :p
