Ohio school cleared over show & tell grenade

Officials say they evacuated an Akron, Ohio, elementary school when a
kindergartner brought what looked like a hand grenade for show and tell.

Principal Karen Gegick (JEE'-jihk) at Seiberling (SY'-bur-ling) Elementary
says children have to guess what classmates bring in. The boy gave a
clue Friday that his item was something that blows things up.

The teacher looked in his book bag and wasn't sure if what she was a real
grenade or a toy.

District spokeswoman Karen Ingraham says the school's nearly 500
students were sent outside for what they thought was a fire drill. She
says a bomb squad arrived and discovered the object was a dummy
grenade sold at a surplus store.

The students returned to class several minutes later.
