    I have five student tables, and I want to give each of them a cute name, rather than just numbering 1-5, but I can't seem to think of fun ideas for names! It's 4th grade, so we're studying CA history, but I was thinking of doing something a little more personal. If it was a group of 4, I'd name each table after a different Beatles member! Any ideas?

    basketball: forward 1, forward 2, center, guard 1, guard 2. 5 fingers or toes. (Where is Thumbkin), thumb, pointer, tall man, ring man, pinkie. That's a little lame for 4th grade & tall man, might cause some issues. Top 5 movies or songs? I admit it, no good ideas here.

    Five boroughs would work here in NY but kinda random for CA...
    I work in a parochial religious school so I could do 5 books of the bible too. But that totally wouldn't fly anywhere else.

    I'd probably just do something that there are more than five of and just leave some out.

    I named my writing groups after candy bars. It's a kick to hear high school seniors say, "Ooh, I'm in Snickers!"

    oooohhh I like the scooby doo & candy ideas! I was thinking Great Lakes, too...but we study CA history so it would seem a little out of place. Thanks everyone these ideas are great!

    Link it to CA history - maybe regions of the state or landmarks. Big Sur, Yosemite, Muir Woods, etc. Or city names, names of missions.

    You can not be serious....and you aren't funny. You are denigrating NYC and Italians with this misguided and tasteless joke/suggestion.

    Of course you can have Snickers, blazer... and Giggles, Guffaws, Chortles, and Cackles.

    (I can remember when Snickers were Marathons on your side of the Puddle. In which case you could have Marathons, and 100 Meters, and 400 Meters, and Half-Miles, and... let me see... Sedate Walks.)
