The Ways We Move

Transportation and movement of everyday goods has temporarily changed with the Covid-19 pandemic. Before this massive change in our lives we would hardly think twice about a quick trip to the grocery or going to a public park to play. Have you ever wondered how people in the past traveled? How were food, dry goods, and mail delivered? This week we are focusing on Transportation on our History Bound page! Let’s take a look at how people, goods, and services moved from the 1830s through the 1950s. To get things started, we have put together a special video featuring the Ways We Move Exhibit tour at Sauder Village.

We have created a fun Bingo Card activity if you’d like to play along while learning about various methods of transportation! As you watch the virtual tour, how many objects can you find?
