schools interchange - 400,000 schools worldwideappeals and projects helping children across the worldTIME AND SPACE

On the Project HappyChild site we aim to offer kids - children of all ages - the BASICS of education - how to read, how to add, subtract, multiply and divide, how to do fractions and percentages, exploring spellings, sounds and meanings, easy ways of learning foreign languages ..... just the basics.

But we thought it might also be useful, if we built a backdrop relating to the world around us.

What we ended up with, a little surprisingly perhaps, is an extraordinary picture of "time and space", mapping human progress over many thousands of years and highlighting some of the major developments that have been fundamental in creating the fast-paced, interconnected world we share today. You can see not only "how things are now" but also track back on the individual timelines of how things developed in different areas.

This page is, if you like, a "snapshot in time" of our global community today - HERE and NOW - whilst simultaneously tracking back on "how we got here".

"Time and Space" took a great deal longer to create than anyone expected. It first went on line on 23/04/05.

This page was updated on 26th November 2010 ~ quite a few resources had disappeared, but we've restored broken links wherever possible, and it's not too much different from the original. Worth a browse :)

Update, 26th October 2022 - links on this page have been restored and updated.
