As a start to our brand new series, Smarty Moose, we take a look at how steam engines work — with a fun, informative view of a moving train diagram. Smarty Moose describes the major parts of a train and the process of converting coal-fueled steam to kinetic energy. Children of any age can learn from this fast-paced, interesting explanation of exactly what makes an old locomotive tick.
We have a FREE activity sheet available here for any who would like to test what they’ve learned from this video. This can help reinforce learning and memory.
We’d like to hear from our viewers – is there something you would like to know, “How in the World”, it works? Let us know in the comments on YouTube or any of our social media accounts. Be sure to tell us your first name along with your question and maybe we’ll answer your question in a future episode! Due to a small team and time constraints, we can’t follow through on every request, though. Thanks for understanding! Please support our channel by liking, sharing and subscribing.
