Would You Pass?

For our Frivolous Friday post this week, we’re going to go back to school. As most kids in our area are preparing for that big day, what would it have been like for kids back in 1912? Recently, an exam surfaced through the Bullitt County History Museum in Shepherdsville, KY, that quizzed 8th graders over 100 years ago.  The questions are tricky. Very tricky. I wonder how kids would do on this test today?

You can see the full exam here, and read much more about how this exam would have been used during 1912. The answers are also there if you’d like to take the test yourself.

How did you do?
