Knowledge Test

As part of my never ending effort to keep my brain up to standards I wrote out some questions without the use of the Internet for the picklets to answer. I know it sounds kind of silly but I rely heavily on the Internet and found this somewhat hard to do. I so wanted to search for general knowledge questions. I guess my mind is in easy access mode. Nevertheless, I came up with 25 questions and then the pickets came up with 6 other ones. It made for a fun and relaxed little session with handwriting practice, general knowledge and lots of laughing. I would recommend doing this with your children. To get you started here are my questions.
  1. What are the primary colors?
  2. Who was the 2nd president of the US?
