National Geographic GeoBee Coming in January

SLES will be holding the school-level National Geographic GeoBee (geography bee) competition at Seven Locks in late January for 4th and 5th grade students. T Mr. Mooney, our 5th grade teacher is the coordinator of the GeoBee for Seven Locks. 

A preliminary test will be given in class the week of December 9th. Per GeoBee guidelines, each student who is the top scorer in their class will advance to the final school-level competition. In addition, the top four scorers overall will also advance to the final school-level competition.

If you would like to learn more information about the topics covered, you can find additional information online in the FAQs and Study Corner sections of the GeoBee website:

https://www.nationalgeographic.org/education/student-experiences/geobee/faq.  

We look forward to a fun, educational geography competition!

Questions may be directed to Mr. Mooney at James_e_mooney@mcpsmd.org  or to our parent volunteer, Ms. Geeta De Silva, at gdheer@hotmail.com.
