Each week, The Sentinel publishes stories we receive to prompts in Kids World and on www.cumberlink.com. This week’s Kids Speak Out prompt was “I invented a time machine, and the first place I went was ...”

“I invented a time machine, and the first place I went was when my mom was a teen. I went there because I wanted to see her when she was young. Also because I wanted to see and know if she had any pets.”

Hannah Masangcay, 9

“I invented a time machine, and the first place I went was 2117 because I wanted to see what was in that time period. Like if there were air cars or robots. And I wonder what the hospitals would look like.”

East Pennsboro Elementary School

“I invented a time machine, and the first place I went was back when the dinosaurs lived and when the cave men were alive. I would wrestle them, and I would get the dinosaurs to chase me while I’m on my four-wheeler. My four-wheeler is faster than the dinosaurs.”

“I invented a time machine, and the first place I went was 1885 in the Wild West. I could use a horse and buggy, Amish style, instead of a car. I’ll watch out for people who are drunk and crazy. I can enjoy peaceful mornings and just relax. I could hunt for food to eat for dinner. I can go to festivals and do the square dance that we do in music class. I could ride trains if I’m going far. I could just enjoy the hot desert air. I could go to the bar and drink and iced tea. I could stay in a farm house and raise livestock ... to survive and live. Also, I will grow food crops.”

“I invented a time machine, and the first place I went was 2027 because I would want to see my graduation party and I want to see what I look like. I would see flying cars and floating houses and stores and any buildings.”

Grace Rullo, 8

Grade 3

East Pennsboro Elementary School

“I invented a time machine, and the first place I went to was 1971 because I would want to see the world when there was no iPhones. Plus, I would like how everyone was so social back then, so everyone would not waste their time on their phone. I always say I have better things to do if someone asks me if I play on my phone a lot.”

Avery Ruttery, 9

Grade 4

Upper Allen Elementary School

“I invented a time machine, and the first place I went was the year 1. I would go there because I want to see what the world (was like) before humans.”

Max Snyder, 8

Grade 3

“If I could build a time machine, the first place I would go to is a Brazil soccer game when Pele played and catch a ball. That would be cool.”
