A real-life kid learnin' some real-life evolution!

They said it couldn't be done. They said "Aw, don't bother talking to young kids about evolution, they just can't grasp it." But aha, they were wrong! We have proof right here in the form of delightful 4-year-old Satori, answering questions from her mom Angela using the Giant Evolution Timeline. Check out her accurate and full-body understanding of the sequence of evolutionary events! Go Satori!

This video makes me weep with geeky & maternal happiness. Yes, it is true.

You can read Angela and Satori's review of the Giant Evolution Timeline and see more pictures at the Satori Smiles Blog.

PS. I don't know Angela or Satori personally. This is not a plant! Oh, and many thanks to them both for permission to use the video.

  1. That's awesome! What fun!

    I just spent almost 45 minutes last week with my 8-year-old daughter and your evolution timeline. We went the whole way through it from start to finish and she was delighted and inquisitive and had a blast doing it. She was even creating her own "Tree of Life" and pointing out which critters from one period she thought were related to critters in the next period.

    Super, super product!
