Our topic From A to B will continue after the holidays.
As Historians we will look at images and photographs of various transport types throughout history. We will work in groups to sort the images into land, sea and air.
The final part of the task will involve trying to order the transport from the oldest to the most modern. We will then share and discuss our ideas to see if there are any differences of opinion.
As we conduct our research about transport in History, we will think about, When was the transport invented? Who invented it? What did it look like? Is it still used today?
