I am helping my little sister. SHe is in the first grade and learning about Abraham Lincoln. Her questions are-
1. What year was Abe president. What year did he die.
2. How old was he when he died?
3. When did he marry ____. Who did he marry.
4. Who made the first flag?
5. What year was the first flag made?
Are these normal questions for a 7 year old?

Yes, they are normal questions. Elementary books about Lincoln and Betsy Ross are available for children in the primary grades.

thank you hope ☺
Thank You Ms. Sue. I was just wondering. When I was in the 1st grade (which wasn't long ago) they didn't teach me this stuff.

They taught m how to spell and mix colors and read music. And how to add/subtract/multiply. Very different than hers.
