The invention of the wheel

Post  Jordan Wahba on Tue Apr 30, 2013 11:27 am

Wheels. wheels are found everywhere. they are found on cars, planes,wagons, machines and much more! we are still not sure on who invented but we do know where it first started. The earliest wheel was found in mesopotamia and it was said it was over 55 hundred years old. People realized that heavy objects could be moved easier if something round, for example a fallen tree log, was placed under it and the object rolled over it. They first used before the wheels something called the sledge. it was basically something underneath the object and they dragged the heavy object around. They then used the round logs and a sledge together. Then this is how the wheel was invented. it has been modified many times but this is how is was first invented!

The invention of the wheel is a really interesting topic, since it has been so helpful during many years. I did not know it was invented in Mesopotamia and I would say that the wheel has been a huge change in history because thanks to the wheel we can move easier and faster and the commerce between cities in ancient time was much more manageable

great topic jordaaan cheers

What would our world be without wheels today? Almost, every way of transportation has wheels. It is incredible how much we use wheels. We might not now it, but without wheels our lives would be completely different. Did you know that the wheel is one of the six basic machines invented. Wheels can also be used for other things such as an amusement, the "big wheel". Nice topic Jordan, keep it up! thumbs up bananarama congratulations
