You can tell we're nearing the end of the year because I'm running out of Friday Five topics!
ROY G. BIV - For the colors of the rainbow!
Shocking that I'd have a color mnemonic, I know.
My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas - For the order of the planets
Pluto was still a planet when I learned about them.
Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally - For the order of operations
Cody said I had to include a math one, so it was this or SOHCAHTOA.
Kings Play Chess On Funky Green Squares - For the order of taxonomic rank (Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species)
There are several different variations of this, but my first biology teacher taught me this one and it stuck.
Please Let Granny Brown Bring Peaches To Your Wedding - For the color of warfarin tablets
There are different manufacturers for medications, especially those that have been around for a long time, like warfarin. Because warfarin is a high risk medication and comes in many different strengths, the colors are standardized.
