The National Geographic Bee Official Study Guide has been created to help kids prepare to compete in the Society's annual geography competition. Akhil Rekulapelli and Ameya Mujumdar shake hands in front of Soledad O'Brien during the final round of the 2014 Geo Bee. Answer sample questions from the National Geographic Bee, and get ideas on how to look for clues within the questions that can help you figure out the right answers. The movement of people, goods, or ideas from one place to another is a process known as diffusion, which plays an important role in shaping the characteristics of where we live. Springtime brings the possibility of extreme weather, including violent thunderstorms and tornadoes. Featuring maps, photos, graphs, a variety of questions actually used in past Bees, plus an extensive resource section, the guide not only reviews geographic facts but also helps readers recognize themes, identify relationships, and understand how geographers think.

Understanding time zones is an important, but challenging concept for many students.The need for standard time zones emerged with the spread of high speed transportation systems – first trains and later airplanes.
Questions from Pharrell Williams, Wynton Marsalis, and National Geographic Explorer Fredrik Hiebert will test your knowledge of the world. In this updated edition all statistics have been revised to reflect the most up-to-date figures. In 1884, delegates from twenty seven countries met in Washington, DC at the Meridian Conference and agreed on a system of time zones that is essentially the one we still use today.Time zones are based on the fact that Earth moves through 15 degrees of longitude each hour. To view the list of school champions who qualified for their state Bees, and information about your state's competition, visit the State Bee homepage. In the 4th edition all statistics have been revised to reflect the most up-to-date figures, new question rounds have been added as well as new tips on how to study from Bee winners, and resources have been reviewed to ensure the most current offerings.

Time zones are counted from the Prime Meridian (0? longitude), which runs through Greenwich, England. Each time zone is based on a central meridian, counted at 15? intervals from the Prime Meridian, and extends 7?? to either side of the central meridian. Note the current time and repeat the activity using your location and time as a reference point.b) Explain that some countries adjust time zones for political reasons.
