Ok, Class – this week you are going to have to THINK (I know it is painful) to solve these riddles!  Let’s see how many we can solve as a class.  I have to say I am a little stumped on some of them, but use the periodic table as a guide.  Post your answer to some of the puns.

For example –

1. What you do with a wrinkled shirt – the answer is IRON, which is an element on the periodic table, but also answers the riddle!

1. What you do in a play
2. What you do to a wrinkled shirt
3. “Tasty” part of your mouth
4. Someone who likes to start fires
5. Superman’s weakness
6. Your brother or mine
7. Extinct
8. Imitation diamond
9. A type of flower
10. Las Vegas lights
11. Police
12. Golden State
13. Name of a goofy convict
14. Mr. Mony’s enemy
15. What you do to flowers
16. What you did to ripped jeans
17. A “prize” element
18. A very smart person
19. Person from the big blue planet
20. A fur seller
