I can’t remember a time when so many well meaning people were in such passionate disagreement about so many things:  

Facemasks for all?
Shelter in place again? 
Businesses closed?
Schools open?  
Police defunded?
Trump v Biden?  

Whatever our beliefs, one thing is for sure… throughout history a lot of brave, committed people have sacrificed greatly so that today we could have the freedom to get in each other’s face and make our case. 

We just celebrated the 4th of July, commemorating the birth of our nation, and honoring so many (like my dad) who fought for our freedoms. So for this week’s article, I thought it would be fun to have a Jeopardy game. The category? 

U.S. History & Government

4. We elect our U.S. Representatives for how many years?

5. How many members are there in the U.S. Congress (House + Senate)? 

6. There are four Amendments to the U.S. Constitution about who can vote. Describe one of them. 

7. Who was our third U.S. President? 

8. Who was our 40th U.S. President? 

9. If both the President and the Vice President can no longer serve, who becomes President? 

10. Who wrote the Declaration of Independence? 

11. When was the Declaration of Independence adopted? 

12. When was the Constitution written? 

13. Who was President during World War I?

The answers are upside down at the bottom. Caution!!! If your eyes wander there prematurely… you FLUNK.
