Interview older relatives and friends about their memories of public transport. Collect photographs, old postcards and reminiscences to make a classroom display.

Plan a journey between two given points in which only public transport can be used. Research the journey on the internet giving dates, times and mode of transport.

Research and draw different types of trams to illustrate similarities and differences in design. Produce an ad to persuade the public of the benefits of this new form of travel.
