BOTHELL -- With summer vacation in full swing, we thought we’d take the opportunity to give a few kids a pop quiz and ask them about the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Here is a sampling of the responses.
“What do you know about the Declaration of Independence?” we asked.
“Nothing,” Brandon McKinley said.
“I don’t really know anything about the Decrilation (sic) of Independence,” Ben Dockter told us.
“Benjamin Franklin I think signed it,” Mateo Solomon said with conviction.
“Did your teachers teach you about that?” we asked.
“No. Magic Tree House” Solomon responded.
We also asked a few kids what they know about the Constitution.
“I don’t even know what that means,” McKinley said with excitement.
“I’m trying to remember. That was a long time ago,” Rylee Broenecki said.
We think we will give them a break. After all, it is summer vacation!
