Knights of Knowledge

Knights of Knowledge

  • This year we are going to have a great challenge for those of you who love learning!  It is called the Knights of Knowledge. 
  • All you have to do is choose a challenge and learn all about it.  Then come find Mrs. Morse before class begins, during recess, or at the end of the day to tell what you have learned.
  • You can use resources in the classroom, the library, your home, and on the internet.
  • Just tell me the challenge number you want to try and then you tell me the answers.  I'll give you an answer sheet if one is needed for that challenge (those challenges have underlined numbers).  If you get it right I'll give you a star for that challenge. 
  • You can choose any challenge, any time. If you get the challenge wrong, you must wait one day to try it again.
  • You can be a 1 Star Knight or a 100 Star Knight.    When you get to 15 stars, you'll be inducted into the Knights of Knowledge Hall of Fame.
  • A list of the challenges is posted here and also in the classroom.
