Mattner's Masters Club
What is Mattner's Masters Club?
Mattner's Masters Club is a free, educational club that was created to help Miss Mattner's students learn new "stuff" by researching things in books and on the Internet. I want my students to become Information Finding MASTERS!!
How do I join?
Joining Mattner's Masters Club is simple. All you have to do is answer one or more of the questions at the bottom of this page and give your answer(s) to Miss Mattner, either in class or by e-mail. Earn points for each correct answer and get your name listed on the Mattner's Master Scoreboard. The more questions you answer correctly, the more points you earn. Miss Mattner's student with the most points at the end of each trimester wins a cool prize!
How do I find the answers?
Any way you want -- books, encyclopedias, the Internet, Mom or Dad, or a really smart friend. Just a hint, Miss Mattner finds all of her answers on the Internet.
Do I have to answer all of the questions?
No. You may answer as many questions as you wish, and you may answer them separately. Just remember, your first answer is the only answer that can earn you points for each question.
How long do I have to answer the questions?
Each set of questions will remain on the Mattner's Masters Club page for at least two weeks. You can only earn points for questions that are currently listed on this page.
