What comes to mind when you think about time?
Time is measured in days, hours, minutes and seconds. We measure time using clocks, calendars, and other tools. Learning to tell time helps us plan our day and stay on schedule.
Time: A measure of the duration of an event or the interval between two events, usually expressed in hours, days, weeks, or years. Time Zones: Different places on the Earth experience different times due to the rotation of the Earth on its axis. Time Management: The ability to plan and control how time is spent and used in order to make the most of it.
The earliest known time-keeping device was called the sundial, which was used in Ancient Egypt around 1500 BC. The 24-hour day is based on the time it takes for the Earth to make one complete rotation, and it was standardized during the French Revolution. The idea of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) was proposed in 1847 by Sir Sanford Fleming, a Canadian engineer and inventor.
