      • The flooding of Britain last year in July.
      • Flooding in Bangladesh after hurricane Sidr in November of Last Year.

    • Make a copy of these key questions into your exercise books and then answer them for each example of flooding.
    • Extent of Flooding
    • How do Emergency Services respond?
    • How are roads affected?
    • How are buildings affected?
    • How are people affected?
  • 13. Venn Diagram. Problems faced by flood victims in Bangladesh. Problems faced by flood victims in the UK Insurance on homes goes up Damp Homes Diseases such as cholera.
  • 14. News Just In…
    • We are now going to watch a news clip from a flood in Bangladesh that happened in August this year.
    • As we watch the clip I want you to think how the problems the people are facing are different to that of the UK
    • I also want you to think about what could be done to solve these problems and how long this might take.
  • 15. What should be done?
    • Using the news reel we have just seen and the picture displayed on the board I want you to write down what can be done
      • now in Bangladesh,
      • in the next few months
      • then over the next few year years.
  • 16.  
  • 17. Who does what?
    • Think about all the problems people face in Bangladesh during a flood.
    • I want you to organise these problems into three areas.
    • What a family could solve
    • What local people could solve
    • What the government of Bangladesh could solve.
    • Extension
