When watching the beginning of "The Wizard of Oz" one 4th grader raised his hand and said, "Mrs. Avery? I have a question. . . did all the people back in the day, you know, like the 1980s, wear clothes like the ones those people are wearing?"
I assured him that people in the 1980s did not wear clothes like Dorothy & Co. and assumed he was finished with his questions.
Until. . .
He raised his hand at the end of the class and said, "Was everyone in black and white a long time ago?"
I answered, "You mean television shows?"
"No, like the whole world. Was it all in black and white a long time ago?"
