It's that time of year again to register your schools (grades 4-8) for the National Geographic Bee. If your school has participated in previous years, be on the lookout for registration information that will be mailed to your school. Or, go to: www.NatGeoBee.org to register your school. If needed, schools may also use this website to inquire about financial aid to cover the registration fee.
To generate excitement among your students AND to help them prepare for the school level bee, use the following daily geo bee quiz in your lesson plans or as a "bell ringer". This website is also a great resource for students to practice for the school or state-level bees, in that it provides access to previous geo bee quizzes: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee/quiz/today/ 2016-2017 - Key Bee Dates:
