Are you smarter than a fourth grader?

Actual answers on a recent Social Studies activity:

What part of Michigan borders Wisconsin and separates Lake Superior and Lake Michigan?

What state has more Great Lakes coastline than any other?

Fortunately, most of the class got these questions right. But this kid? I'm more than a little bit worried about him. I think it's time to make sure he learns how to read a map and can tell the word Peninsula (as in Da U.P der hey) from Pennsylvania.

Oh that's funny. At least he was trying to say peninsula. I would have meant Pennsylvania. :(
