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 “If I invented a time machine ...”

“I invented a time machine and went to the past to witness the battle of Yorktown in 1781. I watched as American forces built trenches around the British base. Then after lots of digging, as I sat under a tree, a cannon ball whizzed over my head. I ran and hid behind a rock. As I watched explosion after explosion of cannon fire, I realized that the British were running out of ammo. After a while England surrendered and America was free.”

“I invented a time machine and went to the future where the cars float. There is no school because there are special goggles that teach you everything you need to learn.”

“I invented a time machine and went to Germany in the 1940s. I would stand up to the Germans and help stop the Holocaust/WWII.”

“I invented a time machine and went to the year 1976! Then I did a lot there. I rented a hotel room and then finally it was June and I saw my mom in the hospital. She looked cute but not better than now. Then I came to her house a lot to play, and now I’m her babysitter! Yay! Then in November, I saw my dad being born. Then I was his babysitter too. It was funny taking care of them. Then I had to leave after my mom and dad’s wedding so I called my time machine and went in and left because it was Feb. 3, 2011, so it was the day before my birth!”

“I invented a time machine and went to Dec. 20, 2019. I went here so I could see ‘Star Wars: Episode IX.’ It was great.”

“If I invented a time machine and could go to some time I would choose the time when people started to pollute our oceans/waters because you don’t know if an endangered species might be extinct, and, also, many animals are being killed by oil and all sorts of trash in some countries and states, including many bays and beaches. Also, recyclables are going into the water and even someday might come back up to the beaches and bays. That is the time I would go to and put a stop to the death of the sea creatures.”

“I invented a time machine and went to the very first Thanksgiving. I saw the pilgrims and I ate the feast. I definitely ate a lot of ham! I saw what they wore compared to my clothes. Mine were Nikes, yes Nikes! They were wearing more dressy clothing. I wanted to play some sports, so I tried to teach them how to play baseball, but it didn’t work out very well. I made 10 home runs. So I brought 10 pilgrims back to our time to watch a baseball game. They watched it and learned how to play a little bit better. We got back and we played for one hour and 30 minutes. I got tired so I played tennis for 45 minutes, but I hopped in the time machine and it was 12 o’clock midnight so I went to sleep. I kept my time machine secret until I brought my dad somewhere.”

“I invented a time machine and went to the future. I would do many things. First, I would see all of the problems that future technology would solve. Second, I would see my future self and see how I am doing. Finally, I would buy some futuristic gadgets and go home.”
