‘Steam Trains.’

This week Room 21 is looking at STEAM TRAINS. You will have to do some ‘research’ to answer the following questions.

1. Who was Thomas Newcomen?

2. Who was James Watt?

3. What ‘fuel’ does a steam train use?

4. Can you explain what these words mean – boiler, pistons, firebox and connecting rods?

Please post your answers on the blog.
