A Kindergarten Class Leaves a Substitute Teacher Frazzled

In a kindergarten classroom, a young substitute teacher posed a mathematical question to her class:

“There are 10 birds in a tree and a hunter shoots one bird.  How many birds are left in the tree?”

One child asks: “Is it a silent pistol or a silent gun?”

The teacher answers: “It is neither a silent pistol nor a silent gun.”

Another child asks: “How loud is the gun?”

The teacher answers: “It is about 80 to 100 decibels (db).”

Children want to be successful in the game or activity to win praise. (Image: Wellspring Community School via flicker / CC BY 2.0 )

Then, one by one, a series of ingenious queries are raised by the children:

“Are any of the birds deaf?”

“Are any of the birds handicapped and can’t fly?”

“Is it possible that one shot kills two birds?”

“Is it possible that a bird is heartbroken on seeing its dead lover?”

“Are there any pregnant birds?”

Children must associate with others so as to enhance their social skills. (Image: pixabay / CC0 1.0)
The children’s never-ending questions leave the substitute teacher completely frazzled. (Image: pixabay / CC0 1.0)

The children’s never-ending questions leave the substitute teacher completely frazzled.

Finally, one child provides a sound and reasonable answer, and the teacher, relieved, says to the class:

“None of you need any more schooling. You are all qualified for government jobs in the Ministry of Education!”
