Name The Monkey

Mrs. Robinson’s 4th grade class took a field trip to the local zoo. The day was sunny and warm – a perfect day to spend at the zoo. The kids had a great time and the monkeys were voted the class favorite animal. The zoo had four monkeys – two males and two females. It was lunchtime for the monkeys and as the kids watched, each one ate a different fruit in their favorite resting place. Can you determine the name of each monkey, what kind of fruit each monkey ate, and where their favorite resting place was?

  1. Sam, who doesn’t like bananas, likes sitting on the grass.
  2. The monkey who sat on the rock ate the apple. The monkey who ate the pear didn’t sit on the tree branch.
  3. Anna sat by the stream but she didn’t eat the pear.
  4. Harriet didn’t sit on the tree branch. Mike doesn’t like oranges.

    Anna, orange, by the stream

    Harriet, apple, on a rock

    Mike, banana, on a tree branch

    Sam, pear, on the grass

    Sam sits on the grass. Anna sits by the stream. Harriet doesn’t sit on the tree branch. So by elimination, Mike sits on the tree branch and Harriet sits on the rock. Since Harriet sits on the rock, she eats the apple. Neither Anna nor Mike ate the pear, so Sam did. Mike doesn’t like oranges, so Anna ate the orange and by elimination Mike ate the banana.
