Time (age 5)

Exercise:  Benny asked what time travel is (after watching a cartoon).  I then tried to explain to him what time is, using three things he cares about: dinosaurs, himself, and how old he is.  "In the past, you were a baby.  Now you're five.  In the future, you'll be ten.  In the past you were a baby.  Far in the past, there were dinosaurs."

Results:  Not sure.  At the time, he looked at the picture for a while and then went back to his cartoon.  But later, he asked if in the past, he was a baby in his mom's tummy.
