here

today is an enrichment day
which means i don't have to be a boring math teacher
teaching the logical steps of computation
i can teach cool stuff
like the 50 states of the USA
you know the country we live in

so i'm keeping a list of the funny things out of the mouths of 6th graders
concerning this great land.  their words in italics.

What's next to California?
Alabama

What's next to Georgia?
India

Hey is this North Carolina, this big state?
(points toward middle of the country)

Isn't Rhode Island the smallest island in the world?

Hey can you help me find Canada?
Canada's not a state in the United States.
It's not?

Is Australia a whole different country?

I can't do this, I don't know the world map.

Can I write in the golf of mexico?

Where do I put Spain?

Arizona is the state above California.

yes here in my classroom. these words really were said.
but they did leave knowing where california and new york are located.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
