Science Exam Answers

When my son was in school and we would talk about school and grades and tests, I told him “tell the teachers what you know, even if you don’t know the answer to the question, sometimes you get partial points. Don’t leave a question blank, especially on written exams.” Rarely are you penalized for guessing, or for wrong answers.

Here are some delightful answers children came up with on science exams. (Thank you, KitKat, for passing these along to me.)
