Are you smarter than a 5th grader?

Take this quiz and find out.

I scored an 80%, so I am equally as smart as a slightly above average 5th grader.

My coworkers and I are currently in a three-way tie for first place.

95% I answered Chile for largest S. American country by area, because I was sure it was a trick question. "You wouldn't think a tall skinny country would have the largest area, but that must be why they're asking...so it's either Chile or Argentina!"

How's that for fifth-grade level deduction?

100% Of course it helps that I am a fifth grade teacher! :)

oouch. %80 for this idiot. looks like scientists are really a bunch of masquerading fifth graders. and for the bonus what was the compound word of that last sentence... because i certainly don't know.

dammit. i got an 80% too. i really thought that i was much smarter than j.r..... it's particularly embarrassing because i got the bird question wrong. don't tell my boss (or dan).

Stupid emus; I got that one wrong, too.

Frances, I think you have an unfair advantage :)
