Geography - How the weather can affect our locality

The weather can have an effect on our locality. In countries, like here in the UK, where the weather can be very cold, some people have double glazing in their windows to keep the heat in.

We looked around our local area at walls and windows. DS8 also noticed the houses here have pointed roofs so that the rainwater can run off.

He then answered the following questions:

1) What are the walls and windows made of?

2)Do you notice any features that might be there because of our cold winter weather?

3) Does you house have double glazing? What does this do to your house? How does if affect you?

4) What other things might people do to their houses because of the weather?  

He will now compare our where we live to homes in another country. :)
