J: 100 years along time, how did people used to live back then before the telephones, or airplanes, or computers? Let's watch the story and find out.
You live in a modern world. Computers, telephones, cars, airplanes. But how did people used to live? A long time ago, people wrote letters and books on rolls up paper like these. They're called scrolls. Today, we use computers and the Internet to write to other people. And what's this? It's a telephone. Look how big the telephone was back then. Today our telephones are very small, and we can use them anywhere. Take a look at these cars. They didn't go very fast, and back then very few people have cars. But today lots of people have cars. And cars go very fast. Look at this! It's a airplane. The White Brothers invented the airplane. This pictures are the first airplanes. Today we flight everywhere. We flight from one country to another country. We even fight into space. Before computers, telephones, cars, or airplanes, life is used to be very different.
J: Hi! Life is very different now from the way was in 18-hundreds. How did people used to live? Let's talk about that. Jenny and Grace are here today. Grace, before electricity what did people used to do?
G: Well, before electricity they wouldn't know electric light, so people burning candle and they ran a canle light.
J: And back then, they didn't have electricity though, they should cook with fire.
J: And what did people do before a car, a bus or a plane?
G: Before there were gasline power, there were horses in carriages. It cost a long time to travel.
J: That's right! We can flight from one country to another in a few hours. But it used to take months to go from one country to another.
J: Yep, and what about telephone?
J: OK! Tell us about telephone.
J: Well, in my grandma's house, she has a very old phone and it's really big.
J: That's right! And look at my phone, it's a mobilephone. It's very small. The perfect size in my pocket. Life used to be very different from our grandparents and their grandparents. How did your grandparents live? Well, that's all the time we have today. Thanks for watching! My phone is ringing. I'll see you next time on Backpack.
