Be a good citizen. And by that I mean a Democrat

Being a man of learning and sophistication cartoons it is my responsibility to ensure that my readers are as sophisticated drunk and naked as I am.  With that in mind I give you a social studies test.  Because without social studies we’d have to play dodge ball.

The way of living of eastern woodlands native Americans depended on the resources in the area.  This can be seen in their shelters, which are called longhouses.  This type of shelter was common because

  • The materials of wood and bark are natural and eco-friendly

  • I mean seriously.  It takes a village

The grain reaper changed farming in the 1830s.  Farmers planted larger fields because they could be planted by machine. The inventor of this machine was

  • Eli Whitney

A group of people want their city to add more playground equipment to a city park. Which is the most effective action they could take?

  • Meeting the city council and telling them of their needs

In 1774 leaders from all the colonies except Georgia met in in Philadelphia at the First Continental Congress. Which of the following best describes how most of the leaders felt?

  • They did not want to return to Great Britain
  • They wanted to ask France for help
  • Does it matter?  Being white slave owners their motives are suspect
