Aliens

Things kids say September 13th, 2008

One of my introductory assignments every year is an anticipation guide to accompany Bill Nye the Science Guy’s Pseudoscience video.   The guide has five statements.   Before watching the video, the students mark the statements as true or false, based on their opinions.   After watching the video, they revisit the statements, marking them as true or false again, and tell why they think so.

One of the statements is “Aliens have come to Earth and abducted people to study them.”   My favorite response this year is from a student who marked true because “they are doing science too.”

    It is good to know that aliens are doing the same work as me.

    A note for Dr. Murphy–as long as the aliens aren’t doing better than you, then all is well with the world.

    I also have give the kid credit for a clever answer too……
