Students can prepare for the National Geographic GeoBee—either at home or in the classroom—by using these world maps to answer the corresponding competition questions. Students should download and print the unlabeled map, then fill in as many continent and ocean names as they can using their own knowledge and reference materials. If they get stuck, they may consult the labeled map provided. Then, students can answer the questions using the map they just completed.
