Are you smarter than a fifth grader?
Do you have a fifth grader?
Go ahead and laugh all you want at those ignorant contestants on the show.
Then try studying with a fifth grader.
Still feeling smart?
- What was the date of the Emancipation Proclamation?
- Which Civil War battle marked the furthest north that the Confederacy advanced into Union Territory?
- What was the Anaconda Plan?
- Where was the Battle of Antietam?
- What did Confederate soldiers eat?
- Who was Matthew Brady?
In honor of my fifth grader's birthday, I thought these cute Wise Owl Cupcakes would be perfect to bring in during lunch! I found this smart idea in one of my favorite cupcake books, Hello, Cupcake! by Karen Tack and Allen Richardson. You can find the book HERE!
Top with chocolate frosting.
With a serrated knife, cut the chocolate part of an Oreo in thirds.
For the owl ears, place round sides facing toward the center like this.
Use the frosted side of the Oreos for two big eyes!
Pipe chocolate icing on the ears and then add "Feathers" above the eyes.
Add two Junior Mint eyes and a Runt Banana nose.
Here's the answers:
- January 1, 1863
- The Battle of Gettysburg
- The Union strategy for defeating The Confederacy during the Civil War
- A Civil War battle fought in 1862 near Sharpsburg, Maryland
- Biscuits and bacon
- A Civil war photographer
If you answered these correctly, congratulations! You are as smart as a fifth grader!
