History of cars lesson plan pictures
Have fun exploring the following modes of land transportation: cars, buses, and delivery trucks. We can travel to school, to the park, to the grocery store, to Grandma's house, and just about anywhere else on land in cars and buses.
And where would we be without delivery trucks? Just about everything is delivered by trucks from the food we eat to the clothing we wear, to the cars we drive, and to the materials our homes are made of. Save Save. Let children stand in a circle.
