Today one of my 9th graders and I had an interesting conversation as she was filling our her review packet...
Student: Mrs. V does it matter which oceans I label?
Mrs. V: What do you mean??? (puzzled look)
Student: Well you said lable 5 but there are 7 on the map
Mrs. V: Which map are you looking at? (puzzled again)
Student: That one (and points to the one on the wall), see 7 oceans.... (she looks for a second) Wait! They have Pacific and Atlantic on their twice...
Mrs. V: Oh Student - don't say things like this out loud it makes me look like a bad teacher
FYI: 5 oceans
