Geography Bee Tests Students’ Knowledge of the World

Students’ knowledge of world geography was tested at the National Geographic GeoBee competition at Aspen Elementary on Thursday. Six fourth and fifth grade students, who were finalists of geography bees in their classrooms, vied for first place. Following National Geographic’s guidebook, Mrs. Pogachnik asked tough questions relating to science, culture, environment, history and science about diverse and far-reaching corners of the world. Here’s an example of one of the questions: What country became the first country in South America to host the Olympic Games? If you answered Brazil, you are correct. After many rounds, the winners emerged: Michael C.: first place; Gurshaan B.: second place; and Elizabeth T.: third place. Congratulations to all the students.
