Activity 2: Design a Flood Barrier

A flood barrier is something that is designed to keep flood waters out of a certain area. Flood barriers can be used to protect homes and buildings. Can you design and create your own flood barriers that would protect your house? Have a look at the PowerPoint to help you complete the activity below. 

Activity 3: Research Activity

Research the floods in Ironbridge and Shrewsbury which happened in February this year. 


Create a fact file or information sheet explaining what happened. What caused the flood? How high did water levels rise? How much damage was caused? What measures were put in place to protect the people of Shrewsbury and Ironbridge and their homes? How long did the flooding last? What impact did it have? Remember to include sub-headings and illustrations or photographs.
