From Here to There

The Hot Seat
We finished our unit on transportation with a field trip to the NC Transportation Museum.  The students loved the train ride.  They learned about the first form of transportation. :)  We learned that one of the first cars was the originator of the phrase, " the hot seat."  The engine was under the driver's seat, and that made the seat hot.  That same car had a lever that the driver used instead of a steering wheel.  The students can tell you that Rudolph Diesel invented the diesel engine.
The Backseat Driver: The controls were in the back.

Our interactive bulletin board was created by using the My Community and Every Day Paper Dolls Cricut cartridges. A few pictures were included from our field trip also.  We counted the wheels on the forms of transportation and made a line plot.  Later we will use the line plot to answer some questions.  We will also sort the transportation by whether it travels by air, land, or water.
