Steam Locomotives

As we are visiting the era of Queen Victoria, we will be looking at some of the brilliant inventions of the time.

Steam engines were invented in the Victorian era. I would like you to research some facts about them.

Who built the first passenger steam locomotive?

What fuels the steam engine?

What is a piston?

Does the train run on a road or a track?

How is it different from a modern day train?

I would then like you to draw a picture of a steam engine and label the parts.

Enjoy the sunshine!
