Are you smarter?

Are you smarter than a 5th garder?

(Sample questions from the test I’m giving on Monday)

Do you know what the distinguishing attributes of amphibians are?  Reptiles?  Mammals?

Can you list 4 of the 11 organ systems of the body, what they do, and at least 1 organ they each use to do it?

Can you define carapace, plastron, organ, herbivore, omnivore, carnivore, terrestrial, fossil, biped, quadriped, and ruminant?

Can you sort the following into reptile, amphibian, or mammal:  alligator, kangaroo, lizard, bear, snake, frog, turtle, cat, human, bat?

Are you smarter than a 5th grade teacher?
