I spent yesterday with 5th graders. Love this class - really wish the teacher would give the class to me - I would almost work for free!
We were reading about an explorer who kept a journal, and they had to answer some questions from the book. One of the questions was "do you think it's a good idea to keep a journal?" one of the boys responded to that question with this answer:
"yes,it's good to keep a journal so you can sell it someday for a lot of money."
