Children's Versions of History

The following excerpts are actual answers given on history tests and
in Sunday school quizzes by children between 5th and 6th grade ages in
Ohio. They were collected over a period of three years by two teachers.
Read carefully for grammar, misplaced modifiers, and of course, spelling!
Kids should rule the world, as it would be a laugh a minute for us adults
and therefore no time to war or argue.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ancient Egypt was old. It was inhabited by gypsies and mummies who
all wrote in hydraulics. They lived in the Sarah Dessert. The climate Of
the Sarah is such that all the inhabitants have to live elsewhere.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea where they made
unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. Moses went up on
Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandos. He died before he ever reached
Canada but the commandos made it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Solomon had three hundred wives and seven hundred porcupines. He was

actual hysterical figure as well as being in the bible. It sounds
Like he was sort of busy too.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we
wouldn't have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a young female
moth.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Socrates was a famous old Greek teacher who went around giving
people advice. They killed him. He later died from an overdose of wedlock,
which is apparently poisonous. After his death, his career suffered a
Dramatic decline.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

In the first Olympic games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled
biscuits, and threw the java. The games were messier then, than they show on TV
now.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The
Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be made
king. Dying, he gasped out "Same to you, Brutus."
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak and was canonized by Bernard Shaw
for reasons I don't really understand. The English and French still have
problems.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Queen Elizabeth was the "Virgin Queen", as a queen she was a
success. When she exposed herself before her troops they all shouted "hurrah!" and
that was the end of the fighting for a long while.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg
invented removable type and the Bible. Another important invention was the
circulation of blood.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure because he invented
Cigarettes and started smoking.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100-foot clipper,
which was very dangerous to all his men.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespeare. He
was born in the year 1564, supposedly on his birthday. He never made much
money and is famous only because of his plays. He wrote tragedies, comedies,
and hysterectomies, all in Islamic pentameter.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Writing at the same time as Shakespeare was Miguel Cervantes. He
Wrote Donkey Hote. The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote
Paradise Lost. Since then no one ever found it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Delegates from the original 13 states formed the Contented Congress.
Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two singers of the
Declaration of Independence. Franklin discovered electricity by
Rubbing two cats backward and also declared, "A horse divided against itself
cannot stand." He was a naturalist for sure. Franklin died in 1790 and is
still dead.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Abraham Lincoln became America's greatest Precedent. Lincoln's
Mother died in infancy, and he was born in a log cabin which he built with his
own hands. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves by signing the Emasculation
Proclamation.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

On the night of April 14, 1865, Lincoln went to the theater and got
Shot in his seat by one of the actors in a moving picture show. They believe
the assassinator was John Wilkes Booth, a supposingly insane actor. This
ruined Booth's career.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Johann Bach wrote a great many musical compositions and had a large
number of children. In between he practiced on an old spinster which he
kept up in his attic. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Bach was the most
famous composer in the world and so was Handel. Handel was half German,
half Italian, and half English. He was very large.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf that
he wrote loud music and became the father of rock and roll. He took long
walks in the forest even when everyone was calling for him. Beethoven expired
in 1827 and later died for this.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

The nineteenth century was a time of a great many thoughts and
inventions. People stopped reproducing by hand and started reproducing by
machine. The invention of the steamboat caused a network of rivers to spring up.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Cyrus McCormick invented the McCormick raper, which did the work of
a hundred men.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Louis Pasteur discovered a cure for rabbits, but I don't know why.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Charles Darwin was a naturalist. He wrote the Organ of the Species.
It was very long, people got upset about it, and had trials to see if it
was really true. He sort of said God's days were not just 24 hours, but
without watches who knew anyhow? I don't get it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Madman Curie discovered radio. She was the first woman to do what
she did. Other women have become scientists since her but they didn't get to
find radios because they were already taken.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Karl Marx was one of the Marx Brothers. The other three were in the
movies. Karl made speeches and started revolutions. Someone in the family
had to have a job, I guess.

D Matt beat me to the punch. Apparently this kid is very wise beyond his/her years. :wink:

Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100-foot clipper,
which was very dangerous to all his men.
Ouch!! I can see why Drake was so good at exploring the world. His men were afraid of being circumcised by a 100 foot clipper! I'm sure the arguments with his men went something like this:

Drake's men: "Sir Drake, we can't go any further. You've been marching us for days. Most of the men are tired and Pete has stopped breathing."

*Drake calmly turns around to face his men*
Drake: "Do you men want me to use my 100 foot clipper again!?"

*All of the men suddenly snap to attention and even Pete revives himself from death*
All Drake's men in unison: "No Sir! We are feeling much better"

One of Drake's men: "Even Pete is doing better. Right Pete?"

Pete: "Right, Billy Bob. That death nap was all I needed."

I'm sure that's how it went. :wink:

Louis Pasteur discovered a cure for rabbits...
Why the &*! didn't any tell me! Why am I always the last to know?

Charles Darwin was a naturalist. He wrote the Organ of the Species.

was really true.
Apparently I didn't learn the whole story from school. People weren't mad because Darwin was going against the Bible. They were mad for a more simplistic reason that has plague mankind since the dawn of time...organ size envy. It all makes sense now. :wink:


Thanks Osmer. It was a funny post. :LOL:
