Episode 2.5

Last time, Maria Bruncar took away $25,000, while Dylan Mack took four times that. But enough about those two, it's time for another special Friday session of class. Once again, Laura, now on the Fox series "Back to You", is sitting in with the class.

Here's an interesting thing to ponder. "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" has only been on for six or seven months, and in that span of time, 47 countries have lined up to import the classroom for their viewers. So before we play the game here in the good old US of A, let's Go Global...

¿Sabes Más Que un Niño de Primaria? (Do You Know More than a Schoolkid?)

5'e Gidenden Akilli Misin? (Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?)

Te Crezí Maí De5tept? (Are You As Smart As a 5th Grader?)

And of course, when "Are You Smarter Than a Canadian 5th Grader?" drops, we'll have it here.  Meanwhile, let's play along with a 34-year-old realtor from Smiley Elementary, SALLY ROYER. She's a mother of three, with one of the way.

So if anyone needs this money, it's her. Let's start with Big Kyle.
1st Grade Grammar $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
How many nouns in the following sentence begin with the letter P?
"Jeff and Polly played poker with a purple platypus."

Kyle is locked in. Polly, poker, and platypus are good for $1000. Sally goes with three, and we move on.

1st Grade Animal Science $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? A salamander is a lizard.

(C-Note: Science was Sally's worst subject!)

Sally knows nothing here... she goes with TRUE.

Jacob's answer is... True... or false. Kyle said... TRUE. He can't save you.

Correct answer... FALSE. Sally flunks with nothing.

Next transfer student is a 35-year-old loan officer from Ontario, Canada, MARK STITH. Mark used to play hockey at JL Mitchener School.

First to play is Laura... Here we go.

1st Grade English $1,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? The word "ten" is an antonym of the word "net".

Mark goes with FALSE... He's got $1000 American, and we continue.

2nd Grade World Geography $2,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Excluding Antarctica, which continent reaches the farthest south?

Mark tries to picture the big map. Laura's locked in. Mark goes with Australia... Not right. We play on if Laura gets it right.

The class said... "South America". Laura said... South America. SAVED!

Mark also played minor-league pro hockey. We'll slap a few shots around with Alana next.

5th Grade US Geography $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
Which of the Great Lakes lies farthest east?

Alana is locked. Mark locks in Lake Erie.... and that's not right. Mark, you're going to kick yourself. It's Lake Ontario. So Mark flunks out with nothing.

New student is a 49-year-old management consultant from Jersey City, NJ, BARRY PAPET. He's from James F. Murray Public School Number 38.

We start off with Jacob. Round 1 begins!

Steven has $100 in pennies. How many pennies does he have?

Next up to help is Laura.

1st Grade Animal Science $5,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
TRUE OR FALSE? A typical male moose sheds its antlers every year.

Laura is in. Barry decides to cheat on this, using his PEEK.

Laura says, "TRUE". Barry decides to go with FALSE. Playing strategy? Yep. Laura's right, and she saves another one.

2nd Grade Earth Science $10,000 PEEK COPY SAVE
In the Northern Hemisphere, the summer solstice appears in what month?

Barry uses his COPY. Correct answer is June.

Before we see what Laura wrote...  Here's Russell Hannigan, one of Barry's friends from 5th grade. He would've also thought August. They teach that in PS38, don't they?

Laura wrote June! They're right for $10,000!

We're up to the milestone question, but it's all Barry.

The entire class has the right answer.

Barry locks in 32... It's not 32. It's 25. But what do you care, Barry, you have $25,000!

New student on Thursday. See you then!
