Hold a classroom geography bee!
Students demonstrate knowledge of geography in a "bee" game format.
Teacher-developed geography questions, such as those found on the GeoBee Challenge page of the National Geographic Bee Web site
- Before the lesson, prepare geography questions from texts, teacher-selected materials, or the site noted in the Materials section.
- Review with students the format for a spelling bee. Tell students that they are going to use a similar format with geography questions.
- Arrange the class into teams, or pose questions to students one by one. Keep track of the correct answers.
Evaluate students' answers to the questions.
