Geocache Description:

This is the bonus cache for the Are You Smarter Than...caches. The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. I don't know what is there. Use the posted coordinates as your starting point. Use the clues found in the grade level caches to figure out the coordinates for this cache. The difficulty level reflects the fact that you must find 5 other caches and answer questions correctly before finding this cache.

Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

So, you’ve watched the show and are pretty sure you are smarter than a 5th grader. After all, those people up there aren’t too bright and you can answer those questions, right? Well, here’s your chance!

This is a series of six caches. In each of the grade level caches, you will find a card containing a choice of 2 questions to answer. Choose the correct answer and you receive the clue needed to locate this bonus cache. Choose the wrong answer and you receive a wrong clue and who knows where you will end up! You can cheat and use the phone a friend option or use your mobile internet connection if you wish but you must come clean in your log if you cheat!

Each log entry must begin with one of the following sentences:
My name is ____ and I am smarter than a fifth grader. (You can use this one if you chose the correct answer on the first try for every question and you did not use ANY cheats!)

My name is ____ and I am not smarter than a fifth grader. (Use this one if you had to go back and choose a different answer or if you used any cheats.)

Remember to use the posted coordinates for this cache to start. Then apply the clues found in each grade level cache to find the bonus coordinates. (Example, begin with posted coordinates for this cache. At the first grade cache, answer 1 of the 2 questions correctly and apply the clue found with the answer. Then move on to grade 2 and repeat. Do this for all 5 grade levels and you will have the bonus coordinates. You cannot find the bonus without finding all 5 grade level caches and answering 1 of the 2 questions found in each cache correctly!!)
