What Is History?

Kids say the darndest things... or so we're told... This is a story from Mom's day.

So, we started out unit in Social Studies today. In SC in 3rd grade, we learn South Carolina History. I start with a question: "What is history?"
Cute little boy in the back of the room raises his hand and politely says, "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present."

Be still my heart, how I do love children who can "quote" quotes. :)


  1. You are ONE LUCKY TEACHER... I predict that you are going to have a Magical Year with a kidlet like that in your class.

  2. Teachers sure hear some nutty stuff
