Is flooding a problem in our area?

Year 4

Unit Overview

This project teaches....

ย children to look at local issues and how they can affect us directly. We will be researching when and where local floods occur. Aerial maps will be explored and acetate overlays will be added indicating the flooded areas. In order to explore how flooding affects the local community a questionnaire will be devised by the class and sent to parents. If the flooding is shown to be a problem, the children will then write a letter to the local council stating problems.
