A Ninja Turtle
Seventh grade special ed world history. They're studying the Renaissance.
We had a few paragraphs to read. Then they had some multiple choice questions to answer. As they were special ed, we were doing them together.
Question number 3: Who was Michelangelo?
Very faintly, from the back, I heard, "A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle."
(The Ninja Turtles were huge when I worked at the evil toy store. And, he wasn't wrong.)
I had the kiddos recall the names of the Ninja Turtles. Raphael. Leonardo. Michelangelo. Donatello.
Then I informed them that the Ninja Turtles were named after Renaissance artists.
It's a stupid random piece of trivia. I love throwing out stupid random pieces of trivia. Silly, I know...
