Spice Up Your Classroom

A classmate sent me this video today. It doesn’t have much academic value, but gives you and your students something to laugh about together. Enjoy!

Shout Out: Classroom Chuckles

Just bumped into this fantastic site! Basically Classroom Chuckles is a place to read, post, and rate all the funny moments in your and others’ classrooms.

Some of my favorites:

Yesterday we were learning about our country. At the start of the lesson I showed the class a picture of the American Flag and asked, “What flag is this?” One of my students said “That’s our country’s flag.” Then I said, “And what is the name of our country?” The student replied, “Tis of thee!”

Word got around that one of my students would be out because he had the chicken pox. One student raised his hand and said he had to go to the nurse. When I asked why he said “Because I have goose bumps!”

Today I asked my class what they expected from life. One student said, “You color for a while, then you die.”

Loving that there’s a place for teachers and other school-based faculty to go and “chuckle” together!

Eye of the Tiger

I saw this on Monday’s episode of The Big Bang Theory and it made me laugh so much I had to share:

Just for Fun: The Effects of Physics on Motorcross

I stumbled across this short article on The Onion. This line caught my attention in particular:

“I’ve had a great run in both professional motocross and Supercross, but the more I learn about kinetic energy, momentum, and ballistics, I’m beginning to think I’ve had a pretty good run of luck.”

*Note: The Onion is almost completely satire and to be taken with a grain of salt!

Two Atoms…

Science Things That Make Me Laugh!

Nerdy Science Blog has a whole post dedicated to hilarious science related Valentines.


And from, some funny jokes:

“At the physics exam: ‘Describe the universe in 200 words and give three examples.”

“A student recognizes Einstein in a train and asks: Excuse me, professor, but does New York stop by this train?”


And I always laugh at Addams Family Values when Wednesday and Pugsley are standing on the roof, asking the all important question, “Which will hit the ground first, the baby or the bowling ball?”

Physics Jokes: Chickens

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Isaac Newton: Chickens at rest stay at rest. Chickens in motion cross roads.
Albert Einstein: It depends on your frame of reference, how do you know the road is not crossing the chicken?


There is this farmer who is having problems with his chickens. All of the sudden, they are all getting very sick and he doesn’t know what is wrong with them. After trying all conventional means, he calls a biologist, a chemist, and a physicist to see if they can figure out what is wrong. So the biologist looks at the chickens, examines them a bit, and says he has no clue what could be wrong with them. Then the chemist takes some tests and makes some measurements, but he can’t come to any conclusions either. So the physicist tries. He stands there and looks at the chickens for a long time without touching them or anything. Then all of the sudden he starts scribbling away in a notebook. Finally, after several gruesome calculations, he exclaims, ‘I’ve got it! But it only works for spherical chickens in a vacuum.’
