Multiple Choice

I played a game with one of my sixth grade classes yesterday. It was a quiz that covered the muscular system, the skeletal system, and the circulatory system. The questions were given in a multiple choice format and a short amount of time was given before for us to answer before a point penalty was received.

As soon as I read the question, the students would call out A, B, or C. I would then click on whatever answer the majority had chosen.

We had been playing for a few minutes when a question came up that asked:

What is the largest muscle in the human body?

The answer choices were:

A. Gluteus maximus
B. Tricep
C. Bicep

A few students were not sure what a gluteus maximus was so the answers were varied and a little hesitant at first.

And then B, a fun and high spirited, husky young man yelled out:

Well I don't know about y'all but my largest muscle is definitely my A!

After a moment of silence-while they all waited to see how I would react- we all fell out laughing!

Bless his heart- he turned red as a beet and he said:

NO NO NO NO I meant my A. Gluteus maximus, NOT my A-blankety-blank!
