Your mom's saying, "if you don't pass your history test, you're grounded." And she means it. Well, you may of been falling asleep in class- or making paper airplanes- or passing notes- but you get what Christopher Columbus did! So the first question on the test: 'what country did Christopher Columbus find?' Easy. Just answered. So what's the next question? 'What year did Christopher Columbus find this country?' Uh oh. You may of been catching up on your beauty sleep on that part of class... Hey, there's a solution! Simply memorize this rhyme- 'In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue.' Everyone knows that! Well now you do too! Its easy to memorize and fun to say. Let's say you pass your test? No need to thank me... ~I'mabighelp
