WHAT IS HISTORY?

          READ VERY CAREFULLY AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS
                              

 

               History is anything that happened in the past. One hundred years ago is in the past. One minute ago is in the past. Both times are a part of history. We cannot remember everything that happened in the past, but we do remember important events, or things that happened. Some history is hard to find out about. Many things occurred, or happened long before man was even around. Other things occurred before man knew how to write. As man developed  a system of writing, it became easier to know what happened because he often recorded, or wrote down, the event. People could read about the event if they were not there to see it happen. By studying history we can learn about what happened in the past and think about how to do things in the future!

1. What is the main idea of the story?
2. Why can't we study about every person or event in history?
3. What part of history do we study?
