Name That Job #5!


We are switching things around this week and playing “Name That Job” today instead of Friday.  It has been so much fun playing this silly game this summer!  I do intend to play a time or two before the summer is over, but this is the last one for a little while.  If you are interested in being featured, please let me know by e-mailing me via the “Contact Me” tab in the navigation bar above.

This is a multiple choice test.  Please take your time.  In most cases, you are guessing which one IS true.  If you want to know more about the person, just click on their blog’s name.  I apologize for running out of scantron forms and blue books.  You will just have to mentally keep track of your answers and check them with the Answer Key at the bottom of the page.  I had to fire my Teaching Assistant recently given the tough economic times, so you will have to grade the test yourself.  Sorry, man!
