3) Think about your own, original metaphor or visualisation of time. 

4) In six groups discuss it, write or draw it down and justify it in front of other studens. We are going to analyze your work with the whole class. 

Part two, history (in polish)

Część druga, historia

Już od czasów starożytnych ludzie liczyli czas, wyznaczając punkty graniczne, od których zaczynali odmierzać upływanie dni, godzin czy minut. Dla Greków takim wydarzeniem były pierwsze igrzyska olimpijskie. Rzymianie liczyli czas od założenia Rzymu w 753 r. p.n.e, chrześcijanie od narodzenia Chrystusa. Ten sposób przyjął się w większości państw świata.

Nauczyciel wyjaśnia pojęcia: wiek, era.

Powtarzając wiedzę historyczną, dopasuj wydarzenia do określonych wieków. 

W którym to było wieku?

Part three, maths

Część trzecia, matematyka

Obejrzyj film i zastosuj zaprezentowaną w nim wiedzę, rozwiązując poniższe ćwiczenia. 

Oblicz, ile lat minęło między zaprezentowanymi datami?

Ustaw słynnych matematyków w kolejności - od żyjących najwcześniej do żyjących najpóźniej.
