Pangaea panacea

This is why I love working with teens: On days like this, sometimes the littlest thing a kid does can cheer me up. Today I was working with one student when another student walked in and asked, “You remember when – I mean, you’re not going to remember this, but – you know when all of the continents were one big continent? What was that called?”

Just the fact that he felt the need to clarify that he knew I wasn’t on this earth before continents existed makes me smile.

Bet you anything some of my second graders would say I (all 30 years of me) had been around before there were continents.
