TKA Announces 2015 Geography Bee Winners
Mr. Lee Daft, the 7th and 8th grade social studies teacher at TKA, congratulates this year’s winners of the Geography Bee. Ben Knight (grade 7) came in first place, and Gavin Hall (grade 6) came in second place after the championship round ended in a tie and the gentlemen competed in a “sudden death” championship tie-breaker that lasted for 10 questions. Ben will be taking a National Geographic State Test to determine if he is eligible for the state competition in the spring.
TKA students in grades 4-8 are selected to compete in the academy geography bee in which they answer questions about general world-wide geography, including questions about cities, states, countries, geographic features, and culture. Many academy teachers present daily geography questions to their students in addition to the geography content that is integrated into the social studies curricula.
