Then and Now
There are many similarities and differences between Benjamin Franklin's
time and now.
The similarities are glasses, books, war, guns, dresses, money, taxes,
On the other hand life today has phones, radios, TV, computers,
contacts, jeans, boots,
bikes, airplanes, scooters, x-rays, running water, showers,
electricity, heaters and mail men.
In Ben's Time they had bifocals, bonnets, bustles, petticoats,
traded things, ate herbs, buckets of water,
candles, fireplaces and plants.
Things are different today than they were back in Benjamin's Franklin's
time. The similarities are people in both times used schools,
glasses, money and they paid taxes. However on the other hand people
used candles to read, while today they use electricity. Today
both girls and boys wear pants and T-shirts. Back then had
ruffles and knickers and girls wore dresses. Today we have robots
and they didn't. That is my story about the similarities and
differences in our time and Benjamin Franklin's time.
