Riddles

9-4-2008
Hello!!! If you know me or have had me as a teacher before you know that I love riddles. They are fun and educational at the same time. Today I shared my favorite riddle with my 6th grade class: What can you put in a barrel to make it lighter??? A Hole!!!

Garrett gave me a riddle challenge: What gets wetter the more it dries??? A Towel!!! I met the challenge because I was able to come up with the answer. So then he challenged me again: What goes up but never leaves the ground??? I still have not come up with the answer. hmmm

Class.....This is my next riddle for you:

Give me food and I will live; give me water and I will die. What am I???

Excellent job Matthew!! He said that the answer is fire and he was correct!

~Miss Warren~


Well I have been challenged again with a riddle. This time it was by Matthew. He asks: How can you have 10 trees, in 5 rows with 4 trees in a row?? My solution, though I don't know it its correct yet: You have the trees in a star shape. At a point or an intersection of the lines is a tree. Correct??!!

Dear Students,

I am so excited to hear that so many of you are viewing our class blog. If you have any ideas of things that we can add please let me know. I have another riddle challenge for you: What can you catch, but not throw?

Sincerely,

Miss Warren

Excellent job Emilie!! The answer that she told me is correct: A cold!!

A man and his son are in a car accident and the father rushes the son to the hospital. When they get to the hospital, the doctor on the case sees the boy and says, "I can't operate on this child. He's my son."

Who is the doctor?
