    Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

    I've played this game with my class for the past two years after school at the end of the year. The students choose a partner and they play against their parents! The teachers come up with questions in their subject. Because the students chose the teams, the parents get to choose the subjects. We have all 5th grade subjects and it's based on everything they learned this year in math, science, social studies, spelling, reading, and english. After 45 minutes, we have a bonus question worth how many points it takes to ensure the kids win. The bonus question is usually a question only the kids would know. The first year it was a religion question. This year it was a spanish question. It was such a fun night! At the end, the parents have to stand up and say, "I am not smarter than a 5th grader."
