Are you smarter than a Texas seventh-grader?
Did you know that the Alamo was originally constructed without its famous bell-shaped upper portion?
Modeled after the Texas Quiz Show, an annual middle school competition sponsored by the Texas State Historical Association, this online quiz will determine whether you are indeed smarter than a seventh-grader.
Every year since 2006, middle school students across the Lone Star State have competed in the Texas Quiz Show to prove their Texas history prowess. Whether it’s reciting facts about the Alamo or recounting details about the Battle of San Jacinto, Texas history is celebrated and preserved through this fun annual competition.
But why should middle school students have all the fun? Now is your chance to prove your Texas history knowledge by taking the brand-new “Are You Smarter than a 7th Grader?” quiz. There’s even a free prize waiting for you upon completion of this fun and fact-filled quiz.
Need a little help? No problem. You have three lifelines to use throughout the quiz. You may use each lifeline just once.
So roll up your sleeves and get ready to test your Texas history prowess at www.areyousmarterthana7thgrader.com. Good luck!
