ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A 5th GRADER? is an atypical game show measuring adults� lack of knowledge � as revealed by how much they�ve forgotten since grammar school. Grownup contestants find themselves in a classroom setting, revisiting their youth, as they tackle subjects they�ve already been taught, ranging from art to geography and math to social studies. However, the contestants are not alone and there is a way to �cheat� in this classroom. The adults have the opportunity to get some help � in the form of elementary advice from real grade-schoolers who have hit the books.
