Final Exam

June 10, 2009

J.D. has the good fortune of summer vacation which commences in a couple of weeks. In the mean time he spends his nights marking unit exams and such. These give him an idea of how much has been absorbed since the end of April when, mentally, school ended for about 95% of the student population. He recently taught a water systems unit to his grade 8 science class. One of the short answer questions on the final test was:

Why do you think many future wars will be fought over water?

Here are a few sample responses:

Answer #1: Anger just takes over your body like you don’t even own it anymore.

Answer #2: Wars will be fought over water because water is made up of water.

Answer #3: You can go in the water so the bullets can’t get you.

Needless to say, I caught J.D. beaming with pride several times throughout the evening.
