What Makes Time Tick, or Has the Industrial Revolution Really Made Clocks Go Faster?

Students explore the concept of time both historically and in their own lives.

Students discuss how the concept of time has changed throughout history, and write a fictional story in which all timekeeping devices are destroyed.
