John Adams: A Multiple-Choice Quiz and Study Guide for Students and Homeschoolers
Glancing back through our historical looking glass, it appears that John Adams must have been a brilliant man. He served as the first vice president under George Washington, the first President of the United States. When Washington's two terms as our country's leader were over, Adams was elected as the second President of the United States.
And, the signs of his brilliance were evident very early in his life - probably before he had even thought about a career in politics. He was awarded a scholarship to Harvard when he was a mere 16 years of age, and after his graduation from Harvard he played a pivotal role in the founding of our great nation. We would not be able to understand how the United States of America began without knowing some facts about John Adams.
(Personally, I don't feel he was given the recognition in history books that he deserved, mainly because he was sandwiched between two presidents that were not only great, but dynamic - George Washington and Thomas Jefferson).
There are so many great articles about John Adams available for you to read on the Internet that it would be hard to select just a few as references for my quiz. Just about any article you read about this great man would give you the answers to all of the questions on the quiz. If not, keep reading!
