North Shore Hebrew Academy hosted its first WhoWas? History Bee this past Wednesday, coordinated by Lisa Weinstein, our new Director of Curriculum & Instruction. The WhoWas? History Bee is part of a national competition sponsored by Penguin Random House. It was the perfect challenge for our students to take on, as our 3rd grade curriculum culminates with students reading biographies and participating in the annual Wax Museum, and our 4th grade curriculum begins with students studying the biography genre. Over the past few months, students read books from the Who Was? book series, a series of biographies about different people throughout history, and the competition showed off all the incredible knowledge our students acquired. One student reported reading 65 books to prepare for the competition!
