On-air challenge: School is back, and today I've brought a game of Categories based on the word TEACH. For each category I give, name something in it starting with each of the letters T-E-A-C-H. For example, if the category were "Things to Have for Breakfast," you might say Toast, Eggs, Apple juice, Cereal, and Hash browns. Any answer that works is OK, and you can give the answers in any order.

Note: In some cases there may be other answers. Any answer that works will be counted as correct.

1. PARTS OF THE HUMAN BODY

2. PARTS OF A CAR

3. PLACES IN AFRICA

4. SHAPES AND LINES IN GEOMETRY
