Next week, fourth graders will be participating in the National Geographic School Bee. This is a fun experience that builds community and encourages us to think about the world beyond Vermont. The GeoBee is meant to be a fun experience that motivates us to think and learn!
If kids would like to take some time to prepare, below are links they may find helpful. Remember that the GeoBee will also ask questions about history, culture & climate, while also focusing on vocabulary.
