5-17-13Once a month we’re sharing a week of MUST SEE MAPS…just because they’re amazing and sometimes the really cool stuff doesn’t fit into one of our tidy theme weeks. This week’s app is GeoBee – an app that will test your geography knowledge that’s loads of fun!

This is a challenging game, so it’s not for beginners…but do keep in mind that the National Geographic Bee is meant for kids in grades 4-8. Are you smarter than a 4th grader? If you need help studying, you should check out the National Geographic World Atlas app, also available on iTunes.

Three types of game play make sure you really know your stuff and never get bored.

In the multiple-choice round, answers come from a library of more than 1000 National Geographic Bee questions. In the map challenge round, you zoom, pinch and tap your way to find spots on an interactive map from a catalog of 1000+ locations. For an added challenge, bonus rounds include compelling National Geographic photographs where you have to locate what’s in the photo on the interactive map…only we don’t tell you where the photo was taken or what is in the picture!

The faster you answer, the more points you get! You have to keep up the pace to move on to the next round.

We live in a society addicted to technology. More smartphones are being used in the classroom and in our offices every day. To help you leverage the technology available to you, we explore, try and share links to apps that can help you and your students.

Every week we select a new app and share its description in our “Apps We Love” column. We do not endorse devices from any one company or receive any kind of compensation for these features. We just share links to apps that can help you teach, learn, work and grow.
