Activity 2

 

Now put these buses in time order from oldest to newest. You could use the videos you have just watched to help. 

         

Activity 3 

 

Create a poster. Choose and draw your favourite old and new bus then write about the things that are similar and different. 

The pictures below are an example - you can choose your own! 

 

Don't forget to say why they are your favourite! Are there any interesting facts you could add to your poster?
