Some people retain the information they learned when they were younger, while others can only recall bits and pieces of it. It all depends on how much we hold on to stuff and how much we study it long after we leave school.
The questions in our elementary school quiz range from kindergarten to 5th grade and include grammar, social studies, science, and more. Do you think you have what it takes? Good luck!
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
The teddy bear has much more meaning than being used for comfort. The teddy bear was named after the 26th president, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, following an incident on a hunting trip.
Roosevelt joined several hunters on a bear hunting trip in Mississippi in 1902. A few of the hunters injured a bear and offered Roosevelt an opportunity to shoot it, but Roosevelt refused, saying it would be unsportsmanlike. This incident soon became the topic of a political cartoon by Clifford Berryman in The Washington Post on November 16, 1902.
The cartoon inspired Morris Michtom to make a small stuffed bear cub. After sending one to Roosevelt as a gift and receiving Roosevelt's permission to use his name, Michtom put the bear in his shop window with a sign that said, "Teddy's bear". The toy became a huge success almost immediately, and Michtom soon founded the Ideal Novelty and Toy Co. Another toy manufacturer in Germany, the Steiff firm, produced a similar stuffed bear, completely unaware of Michtom's version. Steiff displayed the toy at the Leipzig Toy Fair in 1903, where it was seen by Hermann Berg. Berg ordered 3,000 bears to be sent to the US, but records showed they never arrived because the boat carrying the bears was shipwrecked. This means that Michtom and Steiff never knew of each other's creations.
