Hi!  It’s Thursday, August 30, 2012 and time for History at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:

National History Bee

Age Range: 6-18 (Includes elementary, middle, and high school levels – with parental supervision.)

Have you heard of the National History Bee? It’s a nationwide competition that allows students to demonstrate their knowledge of history. The competition takes place during the 2012-2013 school year. The website provides detailed information and registration. Plus, you can access free history resources that include links to educational websites and history quizzes that cover the following topics:

*American History – Civil War, U.S. State History, American Presidency, etc.

*European History – Vikings, The Middle Ages, The Renaissance, Martin Luther, The Tudors, French Revolution, Russian History, and the Conquistadors

*Ancient History – Romans, Greeks, Indus Valley, Mesopotamia, and Egypt

There is a section for downloadable “Study Guides” – but currently a “Coming Soon” message is displayed on that section of the site.

Note: There is a separate History Bee for high school students that you can access here: http://hs.historybee.com/

I received an announcement about this competition with the message from the Director of the National History Bee: “We believe strongly that this is an extra-curricular activity in which home school children can find enjoyment, enrichment, and success. We want to make an extra effort for the 2012-2013 competition to see that home school families are represented well and that they enjoy participating.”

Registration for the competition is $125. Homeschool organizations can register and all of their members can participate. Individual students can also enter the competition, but they pay the same registration fee of $125. You do not have to register for the competition to access the free history resources and quizzes.

If you have questions, you can contact the Director of National History Bee, Nick Clusserath, at nick@historybee.com or 864-475-1776.
