Telling a history-of-something story is always effective.
What's a history-of-something?
It's a scene illustrating the history of... something.
People love seeing an entertaining history-of-something that's common to them told in a surprising way - especially about some everyday thing we take for granted.
It's delightful to see the ordinary world in new & inspiring ways.
Take for example Walt Disney's "Victory Through Air Power" (1943).
There's a brilliant sequence detailing the history of aviation I highly recommend you study.
