..........this is for my GS's school work. He is 9.

I am struggling to think of one that would make sense to him.

Any ideas?

Fizzy drinks are very gaseous and may give you the burps. smile

God save our gaseous Queen?

Gaseous exchange is the process of swapping one gas for another, e.g. oxygen enters the lungs and carbon dioxide comes out.

Something like that!

His love of stuffing caused gaseous maximus.

Oxygen is a gaseous element. smile

Many thanks for the collective inspiration!

Paulinus Gaseous could never understand why people didn't like to sit next to him.

Jupiter is a gaseous planet and is called a gas giant.

Lots of thanks - I went with the fizzy drinks - and he managed to spell gaseous right! - so maybe I have not been talking to myself all week. smile

The boxer Mohammed Ali used to be called gaseous clay grin

So...about to make myself unpopular...

Fizzy drinks aren't gaseous, they're liquid. And gassy. blush

Since your GS is nine, try this one: farts can be gaseous. His classmates will love it.

Baggs Thu 11-Feb-21 11:33:59

You could say cow farts if you want. And then they can get into a conversation about methane.

Beware when eating too many Brussels sprouts because they have gaseous properties.

What's his next word Luckygirl? This could keep me going till lunch smile

Could be related to gaseous eructations maybe?

Glad you said that Alegrias - I didn't want to be a know-all! grin

Luckygirl Thu 11-Feb-21 12:47:29

Maybe we could consider them to be liquid with gaseous elements!

“I feel gaseous need some Andrews Liver Salts”! grin

Mum made a spontaneous decision never to buy Brussels sprouts again because of their gaseous properties.

Maybe he should come up with suggestions to show that he understands the meaning of the word.

Luckygirl Thu 11-Feb-21 13:00:26

Ah - but the instruction from the teacher is that I should make up a sentence (from his spelling list words), dictate it to him and he writes it out.

The ozone layer has been affected by gaseous emissions

Mr P has much in common with the ozone layer.🤭
