GeoPlunge motivates students to learn because it is fast-paced and fun.
With just one box of GeoPlunge cards, anyone can play a wide variety of games from simple to advanced. It’s learning made fun and a whole lot more.
GeoPlunge is more than just about teaching facts – it fosters strategic and critical thinking skills.
Students play in teams of three and must effectively collaborate to succeed.
Students displaying strong teamwork and good sportsmanship receive awards at GeoPlunge tournaments.
Teachers, school administrators and parents have said that after participating in GeoPlunge activities, many students gain confidence and carry that confidence into other subjects. In addition, according to the 2012 National Geography Standards: “There are ‘strengthened learning opportunities’ in the classroom by integrating geography instruction into language arts and social studies curriculum or independently teaching geography concepts and skills.”
Many students ask to play every day – it’s that much fun.
Seeing how engaged the students are with learning and feeling the excitement at a GeoPlunge tournament has volunteers coming back year after year. You really have to experience the excitement to believe it!
Businesses, schools, teachers, volunteers and students from all different walks of life come together for our GeoPlunge tournaments. Check out the blog entitled Building a Better Community by one of our volunteers.
