**Ideas ~ Looking into the Future:**

- What is the countdown from now to the last day of school?
- What is the countdown to your next birthday?
- If you are alive at the turn of the next century on January 1, 2100,

how old will you be? - How many months, weeks, days, minutes, and seconds are there in 1,000 years?

**Ideas ~ Looking into the Past:**

- How much older is (a parent) than you?
- How long has it been since the birth of your country?
- How long has it been since the invention of ________ ?

(Look up the year it was invented and plug it in here.) - How long ago did man first walk on the moon?

It is very hard to figure out an exact elapsed time for dates earlier than 1582,

when a different calendar system was in use. Most of the world now uses the

**Gregorian calendar**, and that is the calendar used here.
