Then, over a long period of time, it started to drift apart and form separate, smaller landmasses, or continents. Our family can't believe it. The Conductor offers to take the ...

As the Pteranodon kids are playing outside their nest, a few seedpods fall from a nearby tree, bonking Don on the head.

On the Dinosaur Train, the Conductor explains that things actually do fall from space. Big space rocks, called "asteroids", sometimes land on Earth, and when they occasionally do, they make a biiiiig hole, called a crater. Don perks up at this-he'd love to see a crater. So ...
