These worksheets help students understanding the three main modes of human transportation.

About one hundred years ago most people travelled less than one hundred miles away from their home ever in their lifetime. Today there are many people that travel more than one hundred miles every single day. The ingenuity of humans is mind blowing. Human transportation all started with the invention of the wheel and now we are using magnetism to travel at hyper speeds. Many people think that Henry Ford invented the automobile, but he didn't. Like Apple's iPhone, he just built a much better mouse trap and one that could be built rapidly. Humans have travelled by railway for over 200 years. This method of transportation is still one of the most efficient. Now we ponder how to tackle travel through space. This is a huge commercial play at this time. Who knows, maybe we'll be vacationing on Mars in our lifetime?

In this section of our website we will explore all the different modes and vehicles that transport humans from point A to point B. This is selection of worksheets shows us all different forms of transferring ourselves and our cargo. We begin with our focus on the vehicles that move us. We then look at the things that affect our movement of these planes, vessels, trains, what have you. We end off with a weather unit that relates to transportation. The worksheets vary from identifying vehicles and the medium they travel in to the weather that affects how transportation operates.
