TIMES HAVE CHANGED! MORE THAN A LOT!

Hi again!

You already know that things used to be different in the past. The first car, the first plane, the first washing machine, etc.

They were very different from the ones you see at present. Some of them were so different that you would never recognize their names or what they were used for!

I invite you to see these fantastic pics that show how things were in the past.

Enjoy an amazing journey to the past!

GUTENBERG

Hi kids!

Books, books and more books! Libraries  are full of them. Bookshops sell hundreds of books every year.

Can you imagine your life without books?

Well, books are eveywhere, but before the invention of the printing  press by Gutenberg things were much more difficult. Books  had to be produced by hand and it was hard work, and expensive!

The invention of the printing press revolutionized the accessibility of knowledge in the Western World.

Watch this video and take some notes for your school project!

A. GRAHAM BELL

Hi kids!

Who invented  the telephone?

Most people will say that the telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell but this isn’t completely true.

Antonio Meucci had already invented  a voice-communication apparatus which can be considered as the first telephone when Alexander Graham Bell was only 2 years old!

Watch this video but keep in mind that the first telephone was invented by Antonio Meucci and Graham Bell made a more modern telephone many years later.

“MY PET GERMS” BY KENN NESBITT

Hi kids!

 

This poem  is REALLY funny, I have laughed a lot when I read it  and I also  want you to read it and  listen to the song.

I hope you like it.

Hugs

“My pet germs”

my-pet-germs

 

I have a half a billion germs
I keep as tiny pets.
They’re cute and clean and never mean
and give me no regrets.

They spend all day engaged in play
upon my skin and hair.
They’re on my clothes, between my toes
and in my underwear.
They dance and shout and bounce about.
They run and jump and slide.
My epidermis teems with germs
who party on my hide.

I never fret about the pets
inside my shirt and socks.
I love them there but wonder where
they keep their litter box?
