Kids’ Motorworks

Students learn how Henry Ford revolutionized car-making by introducing the assembly line into the automotive industry. Each student takes a seat along the line and performs a single job, as the group works together to build models of a 1914 moving truck. Students learn how an assembly line works, and that each job is equally important in creating a finished product. Each worker takes home his or her very own truck!
