Who Wants to Be a First Grader?


Contestants are drawn randomly from a stack of cards.

Each contestant has the option of using lifelines as needed. The lifelines are:

1. Ask the Audience: The contestant may ask the class to vote on their choice of answer.

2. Phone a Friend: The contestant may "phone" another student in the class and ask his/her opinion.

3. 50/50: The contestant may have two of the choices removed.

Any student who answers a question when it is not his/her turn will be sent back to his/her seat and will miss his/her next turn.
