Weekend Trivia: Saturday
Happy Saturday everyone! I hope those of us living stateside had a delightful Thanksgiving on Thursday and that our northern friends are enjoying the weekend. I am still recovering from our Tuesday field trip to Jamestown and Williamsburg with 130 fourth graders (6 am until almost 9 pm when the last kiddo was finally picked up)! Way too much holiday traffic on the way back-ugh. As tiring as it is, it is a terrific learning tool for children who rarely or never even go into Washington DC which is only 10 minutes away(as opposed to three hours for J/W). They always seem to enjoy Jamestown more than Williamsburg. I suppose it is because they have more hands-on experiences there-using a shell to remove the fur from a deerskin, trying on furs in an Indian yehakin (house), going aboard one of the ships that carried the settlers there, seeing the chickens in the fort, making rope from grass, digging in the garden, etc.
Amyway, today is less trivia than word play. DH didn't come up with it right away, so maybe it will challenge you a little.
What do the words reef, figure 8, and constrictor have in common?
Time for the newspaper and another cup of tea. Staying away from the stores again today. How embarrassing for the US to have all those crazy incidents, all to save a few dollars. Hope your day is a breeze, whatever you do.
