Published on

Our Upper Elementary participates in the National Geographic Bee every year. Preparation for the Geo Bee begins with the Montessori maps in Primary, continues through the pin maps in Lower Elementary, works its way through atlases, Sporcle and much, much more in the Upper Elementary, and finds its way into students’ homes and car rides and conversations leading up to January 15. So how do you think you’d fare in the Geo Bee? Watch this to find out.
