How Do I Get Started?

Starting a Program

There is no one model for starting a GeoPlunge program. Success comes in many shapes and sizes with different formats to fit any need–day competitions to full year programs, structured in-school programs to less formal after school programs, and programs with high school coaches, teacher coaches, and volunteer coaches. It works in so many ways! Some schools opt to play the games in class while others decide to participate in a tournament.

Our staff is available to help YOU start GeoPlunge in your community.

Models Using GeoPlunge

Classroom Games

Any of the GeoPlunge tournament games can be played individually in the classroom.

After School Club

GeoPlunge makes a great educational program for a before or after school activity.

Community Builder

Use GeoPlunge games to develop community engagement for all age levels. Here students and police officers are building camaraderie using GeoPlunge.

City-Wide Tournaments

The ultimate level of GeoPlunge competition is participating in a city-wide tournament. Contact us. We will help you connect with partners and organize a fun event for all.

High School Student Mentors

High school students have created clubs and run tournaments at local feeder schools. It is an easy and fun way to fulfill the community service hours while at the same time mentoring younger students. Some AP classes have done this as a class project.

Classroom and Grade-Level Competition

A small GeoPlunge tournament is easy to coordinate within a school by a teacher or specialist such as the librarian or resource teacher.

Virtual Tournaments

Set up a virtual competition with students from other cities. This adds a whole new level of geography education.

Home Play

As one parent said, “I’m not sure who enjoyed it more–my 5, 9, or 12-year old sons, their teenage cousins, my 45-year old husband, or my 71-year old father!”

Year-End Activity

Many teachers find that they have weeks to teach after standardized testing ends and before the end of the school year. Why not use something educational, creative and fun like GeoPlunge?

Visit our Resources page for easy to follow and illustrated rules to get started.

We also have lesson plans for incorporating GeoPlunge into classrooms.
