Unit 4. How do we travel, now and in the past?

Different ways of travelling

Ask pupils to list different means of transport; car, train, plane, bicycle, walking, bus etc

Watch and listen to the video and audio clips listed below.  Divide the class into small groups, each group could do all modes of transport.  For each mode of transport, use a ‘PMI’ grid, where P stands for plus (benefits), M for minus (downsides) and I for interesting points.
