Why should I get involved with GeoPlunge or HistoryPlunge?
To Engage Students in Learning in an Exciting and Unique Way
Both GeoPlunge and HistoryPlunge motivate students to learn because they are fast-paced and fun. With just one set of GeoPlunge or HistoryPlunge, anyone can play a wide variety of games from simple to advanced. It’s learning made fun and a whole lot more.
To Close the Knowledge Gap
*GeoPlunge teaches over 1,500 facts about U.S. geography, including where the states are located on the map, capitals, rankings in state size, population, and order they entered the Union, mountain ranges, lakes, and so much more.
*HistoryPlunge teaches over 4,000 facts about U.S. history, including how and why our nation was founded, major events in the growth of our country, prominent cultural figures, judicial rulings, identification of Presidents and notable Americans, timeline of important events and more.
To Develop Critical Thinking and Strategic Analysis
Our games are more than just about teaching facts – they foster 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 our tournaments.
To Promote Success in School Beyond Social Studies
Teachers, school administrators and parents have consistently said that students gain confidence from participating and carry that confidence into other subjects.
Geoplunge and HistoryPlunge are Fun
Many students ask to play every day – it’s that much fun.
Volunteering is Rewarding and Fun
