It's funny the things we take for granted and assume that kids know.
I've become aware that my niece and nephew, twins going on 12 years old, have absolutely zero sense of direction and where different places are located. When they're in the car to go someplace, their heads are always buried in their DS games. They're never looking out the window to see where they are.
When I was 12, I'm pretty sure that I knew my way from my home in South Jersey to the area where my parents were from near the Tappen Zee bridge in NY.... a 2.5 hour drive. And we only went a couple of times a year.
I swear my niece and nephew couldn't get to their school a mile away from their home if their lives depended on it.
