Welcome to the 2019 Geography Quest!
The Geography Quest is an annual PTG-sponsored event designed to let families explore geography together while learning history and using reference tools. This is for FUN! It is not another assignment or a contest. It is intended for students of all elementary school ages. Some of the questions will be above the kindergarten level. A happy face indicates the easier questions; a black diamond indicates the challenging questions. Please help your child as they try and answer some or all of the questions. We have provided some references on page 12 of the attached PDF. Remember – the goal of the Quest is family learning.
The cover sheet of the Geography Quest packet lists the suggested goals for the number of questions to be answered by grade level. While each child’s Quest will be scored, this score is only for their own information and is not recorded anywhere or considered in any academic evaluation.
DEADLINE: Please return the Quest to the box in the School Library by Friday, March 8th, 2019. Be sure to include the student’s name, grade and teacher’s name. QUESTS WITHOUT NAMES WILL NOT BE SCORED.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the Geography Quest Committee members listed on the packet. Most important – HAVE FUN AND ENJOY LEARNING!
