Congratulations to Jamie Freeman, a 4th-grade student at St. Bridget School in Pacific, for winning this week’s News Quiz. Jamie wins a $15 gift card to Imo’s Pizza in Washington and Union, our sponsor for this week’s Missourian In Education News Quiz, based on news in the Jan. 27-28 weekend issue of The Missourian.

Here are the answers to this week’s quiz:

In the story “Kali: A Polar Bear’s Tale,” why do we learn that hunting is so important to the Inupiat people of Point Lay, Alaska?

They hunt for food because commercial food is very expensive there.

What’s unusual about the new type of exercise that has come to Union and St. Clair?

The POUND classes use Ripstix, lightly weighted drumsticks to create music while you are exercising.

What type of animals shed their antlers and grow a new set each year? When do they do this?

Cervids, including deer, shed their antlers. Deer typically shed their antlers from late December through February.

Thanks for taking our News Quiz this week!
