Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. With your MONEY in hand, change one letter to come up with a word that means something that bees make and is sweet (almost like candy).

Answer: Honey

HONEY is made by HONEY bees using nectar from flowers. The bees turn the nectar into HONEY in hives filled with HONEYcombs, which beekeepers then harvest.
2. Now change a letter to make a word that means 'sharpens'.

Answer: Hones

When someone HONES something, they are sharpening it. This can mean sharpening a blade on a whetstone, or it could also mean sharpening your focus on something, like when you 'HONE in' on a target.
3. Another letter change gives a word for the sounds that geese and cars make.

Answer: Honks

When a goose HONKS, it makes a short but loud sound. Amazingly, the dictionary defines HONK as "the cry of a wild goose" and "the harsh sound of a car horn". (Oxford Dictionaries Online)
4. Switch a letter to come up with a word for what happens when you hit your head or bump fists with your friend.

Answer: Bonks

When someone BONKS their head, it means that they've hit something with it. BONK can also mean to come to the end of your ability to continue a long race (like the idea of 'hitting the wall').
5. Change one letter to make a word that means the sides of a river or the places where people keep their money.

Answer: Banks

BANKS are places to keep your money... even your piggy BANK! The word comes from the Italian word 'banca' meaning 'table' -- the idea being that it was the moneylender's exchange table. Now, a BANK can be where you keep anything important (like a bloodBANK or a dataBANK).

BANKS are also angled surfaces, like the sides of a river or a built up emBANKment. Even airplanes turn at BANKed angles.
6. Change another letter to get a word meaning more than one group of musicians (like Green Day, Nickelback and Radiohead).

Answer: Bands

BANDS can refer to a number of things: strips of material that hold things together; wedding rings; radio waves; native groups; or a group of musicians.

Three popular musical BANDS of the 2000s were Green Day, Nickelback and Radiohead. What's your favourite BAND?
7. With another letter change, you can make a word that describes the things that Harry, Hermione and Ron use to make magic.

Answer: Wands

WANDS are "thin, straight hand-held sticks of wood, stone, ivory or metal" (Wikipedia). In the "Harry Potter" novels (and movies), J.K. Rowling described the WANDS of the witches and wizards as different types of wood with a core of some part of a magical creature (like unicorn hair).
8. Change another letter to make a word for what you use to clap with.

Answer: Hands

Your HANDS are the most usable part of your body. Every part of your body is used for something, but your HANDS are your body's tools.

Apart from your physical HANDS, the word HAND can also refer to help given to someone (give me a hand, would you?), clapping, the cards you're holding in a game, and a unit of measurement (four inches - tip of thumb to tip of pinky -- used in measuring horse height).
9. Change one letter to come up with a word that you would call something that is very useful.

Answer: Handy

If something is HANDY, it is, as the Merriam-Webster dictionary says: conveniently near, convenient for use, easily HANDled. It also describes a HANDY person as being clever in using the HANDs especially in a variety of useful ways.
10. One last little letter change will finally give you all the 'change' you need to get what you've been looking for... a word that is a sweet confection.

Answer: Candy

We use the word CANDY to refer to a lot of the sweets that we like to eat, but the first definition in the Merriam-Webster dictionary is "crystallized sugar formed by boiling down sugar syrup".

I hope you were able to put your MONEY to good use and came up with the 'change' needed to get your CANDY!
