Transcript of The Pocket Watch

About PeterHenlein! Peter was an inventor in Nuremberg, Germany.
He thought time was a great idea to keep
around. Many people today say how did
we actually know time, when we started
appearing after the dinosaurs? People
are actually trying to figure things
about time. Peter Henlein was
probably trying to figure that too,
or stuck on the same question and
thinking the question over and
again in his mind. Peter Henlein
tried to make time alive with us
today, to actually explain every
minute of our our lives need to
count. Every time i think about it
it makes me feel that life is like a
book, we have to fill in our life
adventures or records and anything
exciting that ever happened to
you. Peter was a good man that
lived with numbers throughout
history. That is why I made my
project on The Pocket Watch.
Thank you!
