Today we discovered:
1. North America has a population of 538,000,000 people. (How does that compare with the other continents? Hmmm.....)
2. North America is the third largest continent. Asia is the largest, and Africa is larger than North America. (Hmmm...I wonder how big North America is in square feet?)
3. Coast redwoods are the tallest living tree. (I wonder exactly how tall? Hmmm....)
4. Sequoia trees only grow on the western side of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. They can live for over 2,000 years! (Hmmm.... What was the name of that famous one...General...? Why was that sequoia so famous?)
Have you learned anything new from an encyclopedia?
