who are interested in going above and beyond what is taught in
the classroom.
Directions:
* Pick a question you would like to find out the answer to.
* Take out your Beary Brilliant Shining Star Club notebook and start researching the answer using a book or the internet. "Make a List" means to number down the paper first, then write one answer per line next to each number. "Make a table" means to use columns with headings, number down the paper on the left, then list the information that goes together horizontally through the columns. Ask Mrs. Pugh if you are not sure what to do.
* Write the number, the question, and your answer in your notebook using your best handwriting.
* Turn in your notebook in the morning with your homework.
* For each question that is answered and explained correctly, you will receive one point and a star on your notebook score sheet.
