Buckle Up

We did this challenge as a whole class. We discussed the various methods of transportations the children know. We discussed how vehicles create pollution and talked about various ways we could get from one point to another such as walking, skateboarding... that do not harm the Earth. The children also had loads of ideas to design vehicles that move using solar and wind power. We created a class word cloud with all their ideas.
