Use this historical and educational test
as a supplement to your curriculum
or as a bell-ringer activity.
This 16-page printable packet
features an abridged version of the test given to 8th-grade Tennessee students in 1931
. Passing the test was mandatory for students to move on to high school.
Included in the test are sections on English, geography, U.S. history, civics, and arithmetic.
Let your students match wits with their counterparts from 1931
(you may want to allow them to use the Internet for research in finding some answers).
