To Engage Students in Learning in an Exciting and Unique Way
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.

To Develop Critical Thinking and Strategic Analysis
GeoPlunge is more than just about teaching facts – it fosters strategic and critical thinking skills.
To Promote Collaborative Learning, Teamwork and Sportsmanship
Students play in teams of three and must effectively collaborate to succeed. Students displaying strong teamwork and good sportsmanship receive awards at GeoPlunge tournaments.
To Promote Success in School Beyond Geography
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.”
Geoplunge is Fun
Many students ask to play every day – it’s that much fun.
Volunteering is Rewarding and 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!
