What's in a Rhyme?

My students were studying words beginning with "para--" paragraph, paradise, parallel, etc.

After each word on the page was identified we briefly discussed its meaning.
The word 'paralyze' came up, and I added it to the list on the board.

Turning to the class, I asked, "does anyone know what the word paralyze means?"

Immediately, a boy raised his hand.

"Yup, that's at the church, when they dunk you in the water."
