Travel Times

Life would be very different today if we did not have modern transport. In this activity, students calculate the time it would take for humans to travel long distances through different modes of transport. They then analyse the impact of these technological developments. Students may finally use their knowledge, and additional research as required, to answer the question: ‘How has this development changed the world?’
