‘Are you smarter than a 5th grader?’ is a U. S. game show that aired first on Fox. Since then a lot of shows and channels have made versions of their own because of its success rate. This is a funny little segment on a lot of shows like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The objective of the game is self-explanatory, are you, in fact, smarter than a kid in fifth grade? The rules are pretty simple. An adult contestant is asked five questions from textbooks of grade one to five. He can answer in any order.
If he gets the first five answers correct he’ll be securing at least $25,000. He also gets a fifth-grade student as a partner. You can make it a competition by adding more contestants.
Here are subject-wise questions that you can ask in your own version of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
