How about a brief quiz?
I know you hate pop quizes, but this one is just for fun.
This huge iron bowl is out at the Cedar Key state museum. It's not real old by Florida standards, but was used before and during the Civil War. Those are full size railroad ties it's sitting on, so use that as your frame of reference for it's size.
Question number one: What was the function of this big iron bowl?
This is a common sight at Cedar Key. You'll find these everywhere along the working and residential waterfront.
Question number two:
What is the purpose of the Rube Goldbergian structure above?
Do your best.
Report cards come out Friday.
