So, we are preparing for Morgan's SAT test next week. So far, I have been very pleased with her reading and math. This week we started going over Science and Social Studies. I knew these were going to be the weakest subjects, but I was still surprised by some of the questions. I didn't even know the answers to some of them. I guess I wouldn't do too well on "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?". So, here a few of the particular questions that I was shocked my little 3rd grader was supposed to know. See if you know the answers (without any research, no cheating).
1. Who is Sally Ride?
a. first U.S. woman physician
b. first U.S. woman to win three gold medals
c. first U.S. woman astronaut
d. first U.S. woman in Congress
2. What language is spoken by most people throughout the world?
3. Scientists use scientific methods to
a. find answers to their questions.
b. find questions to their answers.
c. solve the many problems they have.
d. prove they are scientists.
4. Scientists state their guesses as
a. a theory
b. a hypothesis
c. a conclusion
d. a guess
These are just a couple of the questions that seemed a little difficult for my little 8 year old. Even though I knew the answer to most of them (I'm not telling which ones I didn't), it seemed a bit harder than I was expecting for her age.
