This trivia question is based on the TrueFlix biography about Malala Yousafzai.
Education was very important to Malala and her family. What became Malala's favorite place as she was growing up?
To find the answer, open TrueFlix in Cobb Digital Library, and find the biography about Malala.
After you have read the biography and/or watched the video, go to the Nearpod website: nearpod.com, and enter the code ORDKL. I will post the correct answer on Friday, and announce name of the winner!
The correct answer is school. Unfortunately, there were no winners this time.
