Places Near and Far – Year 5

As part of our Integrated Studies topic ‘Places Near and Far’, we learnt about heaps of different places around the world. Did you know that houses look different depending on where you are?

Well… to show the different houses around the world, the Year 5 students researched and built their own houses! Now that’s pretty cool! Well I shouldn’t say cool, because some houses are specifically built in a climate that is always hot! We also needed to take into account a range of different natural disasters that may occur and the types of environments that we would need to build on.

Take a look through the Year 5 projects to see the houses we built.
