Historical File - Pencil

I have been reading a story set in the future called Space Nuts Light Speed by Simon Cooke. Just like in this story, I have written a historical file about an object we use on earth, that someone could read about in the future.

A pencil is used to write. Inside there is something called carbon. This part is the bit that makes the lines and the marks. Outside of the carbon is a wood part. It covers the thin piece of carbon so it doesn't snap. Some pencils are used to draw or sketch. Some of them also have a eraser to rub things out. You hold a pencil in your hands with your fingers as support. The pencil is quite a great invention.

  1. It is funny to think some of the things we use every day will be antiques in the future.
