”Today we're going to take a different approach to our social studies class. We're going to play a Jeopardy-like game where I'll ask you about government agencies.

If you answer a question correctly you get 10 points. The person with the most points before the bell rings wins. The winner will get an A for the day and a pass on the next homework assignment. Are you ready? Here we go:

”Who responded to Hurricane Katrina?”

Hector -- “It sure wasn't President Bush. I don't think the guy even...”

”That'll be enough Hector. I'm asking what government agency responded to the people's needs for housing after the flooding?'

Venus -- “The Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA.”

”Very good, Venus. That's worth 10 points. And what did FEMA provide?”

Hector -- “Toxic trailers!” Go here to read the rest.
