DT Moving vehicles

DT- Moving Vehicles

October 2017

In Geography we have been learning about different forms of transport. We have been discussing different ways to travel around the UK.


We decided to create our own moving vehicles.


When planning we learnt about different key words such as:

Chassis- The frame that held our vehicle together

Axle- The rod passing through the wheels

Friction- the force which is created when two things rub together


We found it very hard to create holes in our chassis for the axle to go into but we stayed positive and created some brilliant vehicles.
