This is an interactive activity to compare different methods of travelling to school. Set the three children off using different transport methods. Could be used as part of a geography / transport topic to promote discussion, or as a maths enquiry. For example, can pupils predict starting points that will allow all the children to arrive at the same time? How much longer was the slowest time compared to the fastest time?
