Ticket to ride

Activities in Ticket to Ride are all about transportation – the movement of people and goods from one location to another on land or water, or through air. It is intended to be a source of ideas for school or home activities. Dip into these activities and discover a bit more about the process of moving, over land, through water or through air…

This pack includes teacher notes.

This pack is developed for 5-11 year olds. However, for older children there is a section which gives ideas that could be used to develop the activity further.

All activities in Ticket to Ride can count towards a CREST Star Investigator awards if you would like to accredit the children’s work.
