What in the World?

Or maybe I should say Where in the World?!  That’s because the National Geographic Geography Bee is just a little over a month away…

That’s right!  If you have a student in 4th or 5th grade, you’ll be hearing more and more about the Geo Bee in the coming weeks.

There are a few things you can do to help your child prepare.  First, encourage them to check out the Geography Question of the Day.  Each day I’ll post a new question outside of my door (which is conveniently located near the cafeteria!).  Any student who knows the correct answer can fill out a form with his or her response.  After a month, I’ll total up the correct responses for each student.  Whichever 4th or 5th grader has correctly answered the Geography Question of the Day the most times will win a small (seriously…small…) prize.

You also might want to visit the National Geographic Geography Bee website located at http://www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee/ .  They have a daily quiz, along with some sample questions for your perusal.

There’s also a Geo Bee Challenge app available for your iPad, iPhone, Android, NOOK Color, or iPod touch!
