Super Man Helps Every One

I have just learned of a mnemonic device that can be used to recall the names of the 5 Great Lakes: the sentence "Super Man Helps Every One".

S- Lake Superior
M- Lake Michigan
H- Lake Huron
E- Lake Erie
O- Lake Ontario

(from Vol. 5, Issue 7 of GX Magazine)

I would say that it takes more memory to remember this than the names of the lakes themselves

Perhaps. I've never heard of this one before, the GX Magazine put it on par with "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" and something else...

If anyone needs a mnemonic device for this, it would probably be a good one. But, the names of the Great Lakes is just something I would know.

Although maybe I should have said "names are."

How about for someone in intermediate school with zero background knowledge?

We learned the mnemonic aid - HOMES. I've used that as an example of a mnemonic device in my literacy workshops for teachers - but many don't see the need to know the Great Lakes, unless they are from the north!

I like that one better.

Wouldn't learning the Great Lakes go hand in hand with Early American history, ie. Native Americans etc.? I'd think that SHOULD be in nationwide curriculum. Ah well.
