About This Quiz

Nursery rhymes have been popular around the world for generations and generations. Some are educational in nature. These are used to teach kids things like early spelling and rudimentary numbers. Others have dark or unexpected roots and some are just silly. Some even teach moral lessons in a fun way, while others make no sense at all. Regardless, kids have used them to play and learn for generations, often without even knowing that they are learning. Adults have also used them to keep energetic youngsters entertained. 

Sometimes there is more than meets the eye to these simple songs and rhymes. People of all ages most likely grew up singing or saying a few of these. They provided fun ways to learn everything from the alphabet to math to important social lessons. While not all of these apply anymore, nursery rhymes also illustrated the consequences of doing dangerous things from time to time. All of these are important lessons for young kids to absorb. Some even may have been to teach kids animal sounds.
