Program Overview

This is  a flexible and interactive program to encourage your students to explore, discover and think critically and creatively when investigating public transport.


  • Public transport is a real-life topic that will engage and challenge upper primary students in a range of learning areas.
  • Our program gives students opportunities to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes to make informed and safe decisions.

Topics have been mapped to the Western Australian Curriculum and lessons can be easily incorporated into your existing programs to deliver great cross-curricular learning outcomes.


All resources are housed here in one easy location, printable and ready to use.

  • We've based our resources on the principles for student-centred learning, enquiry and creative and critical thinking. 
  • Activities encourage your students to become active participants through a range of whole class discussions, small group activities, partner work and individual activities.
  • ‘Guided inquiry' and ‘Tuning in' activities are designed to saturate student interest and create natural inquiries in five key areas:
    • Network knowledge 
    • Journey planning
    • Ticketing
    • Safe travel
    • Rights and responsibilities
  • Teachers of students with a disability can adapt the learning activities to meet individual needs. Further information is available in Student Diversity and the Australian Curriculum Advice for principals, schools and teachers.
  • A BloomGard Matrix has been designed to conclude the unit of work, allowing students to complete their guided inquiry. The Matrix has been designed to demonstrate higher order, critical and reflective thinking skills through different learning styles.
  • With the Matrix, students can take ownership of their own learning and apply the skills and strategies they’ve learnt previously to ‘pick and choose’ their own activities.
