GeoBee Challenge - Test Your Geography Knowledge

This week the 2012 National Geographic Bee champion was crowned. To help your students prepare for next year's National Geographic Bee, National Geographic offers the GeoBee Challenge.

The GeoBee Challenge is a daily series of ten geography quiz questions. The challenges can be played in apprentice mode or in expert mode. Apprentice mode gives students two tries at every question. The expert mode gives just one shot at each question.

Applications for Education
If you're looking for a quick activity that your students can do every day to sharpen their knowledge of geography, consider putting a link to the GeoBee Challenge on your classroom blog or website.

The GeoBee Challenge is also available as an app for iPads and Android tablets, but it is not a free app.

Here's a list of eleven resources for geography awareness.
