Pioneers of Transport

The history topic in class 10 was to study 4 Pioneers of transport: George Stephenson, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Henry Ford and the Wright brothers. The children were encouraged to think about why some people have become historically significant and develop a knowledge and understanding of people, events and contexts from historical periods, such as Henry Ford, who developed the assembly line and mass production. The children enjoyed inventing their own assembly lines!
