For Kids!

What is the Mastery Club?
This is a club for students who are interested in
going above and beyond the normal classroom expectations. 
It is a way to challenge my students and to keep their brains active!  I hope to inspire everyone to learn new things all the time because learning never ends!

Each time you answer a question correctly, you get a star from me! For each star you get, you can earn $1.00 in Classroom Money! You can be a 1 star member, all the way up to a 90 star member. You start in the Bronze Members, and can work your way all the way up to the Diamond Members. Here is the criteria for getting into each Member Group:

Bronze Members: 1-19 Stars
Silver Members:  20-38 Stars
Gold Members:  39-57 Stars
Platinum Members:  58-75 Stars
Diamond Members:  76-90 Stars

How do we participate?
It's easy! Choose any question from this page and research it using the website provided, in order to find the answer. Then, copy the question and answer in your Beary Challenging Mastery Club Notebook! Bring it to me, and I will give you a star for each correct answer! Then, I will update the website with your new stats.

What is the Mastery Club Notebook?
Any notebook that you want to use! Sometimes the small notepads are good for this club, and you can put one question per page, but you can use whatever you feel comfortable using! When recording in your Mastery Club Notebook, please put the number of the question, copy the question, and then it's answer below. Keep it organized please! Skip lines in between questions, use neat handwriting, etc...

What happens after you are a Diamond Member?
Well, then you get the special privilege of helping me research and make up
Kid-Created Questions to add to this Mastery Club!

Good Luck and have fun!
