Chad & Jaclyn Play ‘Are You Smarter Than A 3rd Grader’ With St. Wendel Catholic School… And Lose! [VIDEO]

Mr. Ryan Novak's 3rd grade class at St. Wendel Catholic School in Indiana recently raised money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Mr. Novak's class last year did that same thing and Chad and I visited them last Spring and went back this past Monday to visit with this year's class.

The kids thought it would be fun to challenge us to a game of "Are You Smarter Than A 3rd Grader", which we agreed to. Now, the twist with the game is, if/when we get a 3rd grade level answer wrong, we have to eat nasty food that the kids picked. I'm talking disgusting, gross food.
