John Marsden Writing Topic #23
Was the wheel humanity’s greatest invention?**
Yes I think it is. With the exception of walking, every mode of transport has wheels–cars, bikes, trains, trams, planes. Without the wheel, these modes of transport wouldn’t be possible and without these modes of transport, no-one would be able to travel. Without the ability to travel; society, the economy, cities and people wouldn’t be able to cope or grow.
