Kids Say the Darndest Things

Science teacher: "I got these rocks about 10 years after Mt. St. Helens erupted, from the side of the road up there."

Student: "So... are those rocks still hot?"

Student: "What is Mr. Huey?"
Me: "He is a man."
Student: "No, I mean like is he Chinese or American?"
Me: "Well, he is American. But his dad's ancestors are from China and his mom's ancestors are from Europe."
Student: "So does he look Asian or not Asian?"
Me: "Well it depends on which way he's standing. Sometimes he looks Asian and sometimes he doesn't."

Next day, after student sees Mr. Huey: "You were right. From one side he looked Asian, and from the other side he didn't."

Several days later, after student see Mr. Huey wearing the same shirt: "Does Mr. Huey only have one shirt?"
Me: "Yes."
Student: "Oh. What about pants?"

Kindergartner: "Are you a 4th grader or a 5th grader?"
Me: "I'm Mrs. Huey. I teach 4th grade."
Kindergartner: "Oh... So who's class are you in?"
