It is thought that the oldest human being lived to be one hundred and twenty-two years old. That seems like a long time, until we consider the age of planet Earth. Humans, even the old ones, were here for less than the blink of an eye on the planetary timeline!
Even, Mother Earth herself is a youngster in relation to the other planets in our solar system. And our solar system ... just a baby in a sky full of stars whose age challenges our calculating capabilities!
So what IS really old?
Wisteria needs to find out!
In Wisteria's Show and Tell Spectacular: Older than the Dinosaurs, Wisteria, the self-proclaimed Queen of Show and Tell must bring in something really old for this week's assignment.
She begins her search in the kitchen, but all she finds is an old petrified bagel, some moldy cheese and a few wilted daises.
Next she tries her bedroom but nothing there is even as old as she. Frustrated, her mother suggests they take a walk in the park. There she meets her neighbors who look like they're pretty old.
“Hi!” said Wisteria, “I need some help with Show and Tell. Are any of you really old?”
