Today’s students need to understand how the complex and dynamic human and natural systems interact in order to make smart decisions.
The Geo-Inquiry Process relies on using a geographic perspective, offering a unique lens to analyze space, place, and the interconnections between both the human and natural world.
Using both a geographic perspective and the Geo-Inquiry Process students begin to connect complex components, see patterns, and make connections that change their communities.
WGA is exploring how to implement the place-based learning inherent in NatGeo's Geo-Inquiry Process using online resources from the Wyoming Student Atlas.
The National Geographic Society supports research, exploration, and conservation in every part of the globe every year. (Learn more about our scientific grant programs.)
We focus our attention on key projects that emphasize science, technology, and storytelling to help protect species-at-risk, better understand human history and culture, and conserve some of our planet’s last wild places.
Classroom Resources can be browse by grade, subject, or resource (activity, article, collection, lesson, map, video, photo or infographic)
Professional development for teachers includes NatGeo's Educator Network, Educator Certification Program, Online Courses (some free!), Grants and Fellowships, and the Geo-Inquiry Process.
Student experiences via National Geographic include the GeoChallenge, the GeoBee, Explorer Classroom (virtual field trips) and Student Matinees (speaker presentations for classes)
