Q and A

Here’s some more fun responses from BrainQuest questions this week. Some are just funny wrong answers, but at other times we go into this zone of ridiculousness. This happens after a lot of wrong answers in a row, or when I get frustrated that they can’t answer something I know they know because I freaking taught it to them. Then it’s all just chaos.

Q: True or false: Abraham Lincoln was the second president

A: The Civil War

Q: What do we call organisms that eat only plants?

A: Vegans

Q: Who wrote the book A Christmas Carol?

A: Michael Buble

A #2: John Lennon

(Clarifier that the Christmas Carol is question is a book, not an actual Christmas carol)

A #3: J.K. Rowling

Q: Portuguese, Danes, and Spaniards are from what continent?

A: Mexico

A #2: France

(Clarification about the difference between a country and continent, with reminder that we did this last year)

A #3: New Hampshire

(Clarification about the difference between a state and a continent, and slightly angry reminder that we did this last year, yes we did, I know you did this because I was also your third grade teacher, and no you weren’t absent on the day we did it because it was part of a month long unit)

A #4: Asia

At this point I yelled “Yes!” on the basis that it actually was a continent
