"Which country has the highest population density in Asia -- Singapore or North Korea?"*
"Visitors to Channel Islands National Park in California can take a boat tour to see which animal -- penguin or gray whale?"*
It's time to get ready for the 2020-2021 *remote* National Geographic Society geography bee!
This year's National Geographic Society geography bee for Montgomery County home schoolers will be Tuesday, December 15 at 10:00 am *online*.
All Montgomery County home schooled students in grades 4-8 are invited to participate. The Montgomery County bee also welcomes home schooled students in 4th-8th grade in other Maryland counties and the District of Columbia who choose to participate in the Montgomery County bee instead of any bee that may be held in their own county/district.
The winner of this school-level bee will be eligible for the Maryland state geography bee held in the spring.
I am frequently asked the question, "How should my student study for the bee?" Because the National Geographic Society does not provide students with materials to study for the bee, I encourage students to prepare in whatever fashion best suits their interests and learning styles. Parents and students may find helpful some of the suggestions for preparation I have developed based on my 16 years of involvement with the bee.
This year, the bee registration fee will be $10 per student through Oct. 31 and $15 per student after Oct. 31.
