Foreword by Susannah Batko-Yovino, 1990 National Champion.
Here is a wonderful new resource for sharpening kids’ geography skills and for sparking fresh interest in our world’s fascinating people and places. Some five million students now compete in the annual National Geographic Bee, a cornerstone of the Society’s ongoing efforts to foster geography education. Created in response to growing interest in the event, this official paperback study guide will help prepare students to compete more successfully in the contest. But its value goes far beyond that—this unique teaching tool makes geography fun for ALL young people! Featuring maps, photos, graphs, a variety of questions actually used in past Bees, plus an extensive resource section, the lively guide not only reviews geographic facts but also helps kids recognize themes, identify relationships, and understand how geographers think and view their world.
