Percy Jackson Quiz

We've just finished reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief - a fantastic book - most children in class India would highly recommend it! Anyway, I thought it would be good fun to put a few quiz questions about the book on our blog - 1 Table Point for every correct answer (must be spelt correctly - only 1 answer person person), and then 1 Table Point for any extra questions that you contribute...

1. Percy's story begins on a school field trip from Yancy Academy. One teacher on the trip was Mr Brunner; Percy vaporized the other. What was her name?

3. Percy's spectacular entrance to Camp Half-Blood is to drool in his unconscious sleep. His first awake day at camp is an eventful one though; he sees the camp climbing wall, which rains down lava, the camp archery range, hitting his instructor in the tail, the fighting arena, and he blasts the camp bully out of the bathroom using toilet water. Oh, and he meets the Greek god of wine. Who is he?

4. Soon, Percy found himself playing capture the flag Camp Half-Blood style: no killing. During the game, Percy was again attacked by the camp bully Clarisse.

7. Percy, Annabeth and Grover travel to Las Vegas in the back of an animal smuggling truck with a lion, zebra and an antelope. Upon arriving in Las Vegas, the group sets the animals free and runs from the truck. What magical location do they run to?

8. Upon getting to Los Angeles, the crew promptly gets lost. They have an address for the Underworld entrance, but no one seems to know where it is.

Esther - in order to get the first Table Point up for next week you need to correct the spelling for that character! You should be able to find this with a Google search...

Hannah - unfortunately this magical item doesn't belong to Hades.
