With the Fourth of July coming soon, I thought it would be fun to create some Fourth of July trivia questions to see what my kids already know about our nation’s holiday.
I also wanted to teach them a few new things about the Fourth of July and the founding of our great country.

I let the kids eat most of their meal before pulling out the half sheet trivia quizzes.
I gave each of them a quiz and a pen, and let them take about 10 minutes to fill in their answers.
Some of the questions were easy enough that I knew they would be able to answer them.
However, some were definitely more challenging (that I didn’t even know the answers to), but I did that on purpose to get some conversation going. 😉
All of my kids were really excited to take the America quiz, which made me excited too.
There was about 10 minutes of silence while they took the quiz.
Reading the Answers
Afterwards we read the questions, they told me their answers, and I told them the correct answer for each one.
Some of their answers were surprisingly insightful and creative, and some were just really funny!
Here is one of my favorites from my six-year-old daughter.
The question asked, “What two things should never touch the flag?”
Her answer? “Ax and gun.”
Makes perfect sense to me!
I was impressed that my son knew that the national bird was almost a turkey, and that is was Benjamin Franklin who was pushing for the turkey.
We took a few pictures after dinner of my kids and their quizzes, as well as some of their answers.

I am so impressed with the conversation and the learning that took place during our meal.
Dinner went on for a LOT longer than usual, because of the great conversation that was taking place, and that is fine with me!
I feel like the kids all left dinner that night with a lot more knowledge of our country, which is definitely a good thing.
