Becoming an American

Today several hopefuls are waiting to become American citizens at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello for the Naturalization Ceremony. Since 1963 there have been 3,000 people that have taken the oath to become Americans on this very special day at the home of no other than the author of the Declaration of Independence.
In order to become an American citizen you have to take several tests

The civics test consists of 100 questions. Each hopeful will be asked 10 out of 100 and will have to correctly answer 6 of those questions. They will be given two chances every 90 days to correctly pass this test.

See if you could answer some of the questions to become an American
What is the supreme law of the land
What does the Constitution do
What is an amendment
What do we call the first ten amendments of the Constitution
What is freedom of religion
What does the judicial branch do
What is the highest court in the United States
What is one reason colonists came to America
There were 13 original three
When was the Constitution written
Name one problem that led to the Civil War
What did Susan B. Anthony do

Where is the Statue of Liberty
Why does the flag have 13 stripes
