Smarter than a 5th Grader
We regular Skype our 5th grade niece, sometimes to help her with her homework. This week she had an assignment that kept our heads spinning.
She had a list of about 20 words where she was suposed to change one letter to create a new word like "ago change that o to an e to create age".
After a fair amount of work the three of us completed the assignment, finding ten words to convert except for the following words: "asleep, because, between, before, afraid, below, across, ahead and again". We simply could not replace one letter to create a new word.
I will say we worked on this for hours after our Skype call with no further success.
Also I will say Skype is extremely useful during our travels, particularly with younger people who sometimes like to sit there and just chit chat with you.
Are you smarter than a fifth grader? Did the teacher just stick some impossible words into the assignment?
