September 28 – Today is Ask a Stupid Question Day. It’s your opportunity to speak up, and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. Today is the day to unload them.
BE BOLD! C’mon give it a try. Nobody will laugh…O.K., we’ll start it off with a few questions we’ve been holding back on:
Q: If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?
Q: Do fish get thirsty?
The origin of this special day goes back to the 1980’s. At the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in being teased.
