National Geographic Bee

Gwinnett County Homeschool Geo Bee: 4th-8th grade

The National Geographic Bee is an annual competition organized by the National Geographic Society, designed to inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world.

The Gwinnett County Homeschool Geo Bee is open to all GA home educated students who do not live in a county hosting a separate bee. (Most years, only a few counties host a homeschool bee.)

Students who preregister receive a participation certificates. BHG recognizes 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place winners. The Champion takes an online qualifying test for the GA State Geo Bee. Over 200 GA school champions take this test and only the top 100 scorers are invited to the State Bee.

Geo Bee is double-elimination in most rounds. Questions in many rounds are multiple-choice, while some rounds are short answer. At least one round includes a written response, with all competitors answering the same question.

BHG offers a free study session several weeks before the Geo Bee. Students do not need to be registered to attend the study session. Date is TBA. You can click HERE to access the study tools available at the National Geo Bee webiste.

Park Days

Come join us for park days!  We meet at various parks once a month. Sometimes it is a planned activity, such as water wars, volleyball, or flag tag, and other times we just let the kids play. It's a great time of fun for the kids and fellowship for the moms!


Field Trips

BHG offers organized as well as information on "go-on-your-own" field trips to our BHG members.  Our organized field trips which we do about once a month have includeded a trip to the Holocaust Museum, Operation Christmas Child, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra "Symphony Street", a chocolate factory tour, a hike up Stone Mountain, Atlanta History Center, WSB TV Tour, Wrens Nest, National Weather Service, and Chick-fil-a corporate headquarters.


When BHG offers a field trip, all participants will dress modestly and appropriately for the activity.  Chaperones must also make personal arrangements for childcare and take responsibility for the children in their care.  No running inside buildings, parking lots, climbing on furniture or banisters permitted.  No name-calling or rude behavior will be tolerated.  Music and movies should not be topics of conversation.  If a child's behavior is disruptive, BHG/BHA reserves the right to prohibity that child from participating in BHG/BHA activities for a period of six months.  

Moms Meetings

Most months we have special meetings for moms. Past years have included the following:

-Encouragement and Information with guest speaker Ruth Martin
-Craft nights
-Organizational ideas
-Health and Exercise sessions

-Annual Curriculum Share
Come join us for a fun time of learning and fellowship!

Family Activities

Each year we have a fall family picnic and bonfire. This is a great way to kick off our school year together. We have a great time of food, fun, and fellowship!
This year we will be having our 2nd Annual End of Year Showcase. This is a chance for the kids to share something they have learned/accomplished throughout the school year as well as a chance for the parents to recognize their children's achievements.
