Funny Test Answers Given By Junior High Students
Funny, But True!
The majority of my junior high years was spent trying to fit in and adjusting to the new class schedules. Trying to comprehend pre-algebra was a mental challenge. I was not the most studious adolescent; in fact, I spent most of my time out of the classroom, pretending to be sick at home.
For me, a test was overwhelming, let alone a basic quiz of knowledge. Given that I barely studied, my responses at the time were somewhat humorous. But you must believe me when I tell you that they were actually quite sincere. Since the questions were garbled bits of information my mind couldn't process, I simply wrote whatever came to my mind in response. The reason for this is another story and I may have to post an article on this in the near future.
Today as an educator, I come across some interesting test answers to questions I'm sure baffle the mind of many adults. I love how the young mind responds with quick wit. I decided to share some of the most recent findings with readers.
Yes, have a good laugh; but remember, some of the responses are written with serious intentions. You just have to admire the adolescent spirit of creativity!
