There is no one model for starting a HistoryPlunge or 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 HistoryPlunge or GeoPlunge in your community.
Any of the tournament games can be played individually in the classroom.
HistoryPlunge or GeoPlunge are perfect for before or after school enrichment programs.
Use LearningPlunge games to develop community engagement for all age levels. Here students and police officers are building camaraderie using GeoPlunge.
The ultimate level of 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 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.
A small HistoryPlunge or GeoPlunge tournament is easy to coordinate within a school by a teacher or specialist such as the librarian or resource teacher.
Set up a virtual competition with students from other cities. This adds a whole new level of geography education.
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!”
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?
