Yesterday, I was quizzing Peter for his Social Studies test. He had a review sheet that they had worked on in groups. I was looking it over before we started. I asked him, "Peter, who settled El Paso, Texas?" His response, "You know, Nate, Nate of Americans." I looked at his paper and it did indeed say Nate of Amerikans. (He also told me who in his group came up with that one, but that student will remain anonymous-there are moms from our school who read our blog.) Still, not catching on ( I am very slow!), I went to the book. Then it hit me. El Paso was settled by Native Americans! He is well aware of the correct answer, now.
