1. Lisa wrote the following entry in her science journal: Muscles are only found in the arms and legs. The main job of the muscles is make us strong.

Do you agree with Lisa, explain your answer.

“No, because that is the most [idiotic] thing that I have ever heard in my life.”

2. What else would you write about muscles in YOUR journal?

“That you have muscles everywhere in your body and Lisa is stupid.”

Student 1: “Oh, My, God!  Are these diamonds!?”

Me: “Um, no…we don’t have the budget for that, and diamonds aren’t this big.”

Student 2: “Yeah, and if they WERE diamonds, Miss McMcerson would probably already be in her car.”

Me: “Would you miss me?”

Student 2: “Nah…you’d come back…and you’d probably have that pony you never shut up about.”
