Unit 3. What makes people travel?

How we travel

Encourage the pupils to think about how they travel and compare it to how people have travelled in the past. Use the following questions to stimulate discussion:

  • Do you want to travel? Why?
  • Where have you travelled during the past week? Why? How far did you go? 
  • Why have people travelled in the past? Can you think of any big groups of people who have travelled at a particular time?  How do we know where they went?  How can we find out about their journeys?
  • Why have other people chosen to leave Northern Ireland?
