Geography work for Thursday and Friday

 

Thames Barrier Project

For the Thursday and Friday afternoons this week, we’d like you to research the Thames Barrier in London and create a PowerPoint presentation or booklet about it.  Things you need to include:

  • What is it?
  • Where abouts in London is the Thames Barrier?
  • Why was it built?
  • How many times has it closed and when was the last time it closed?
  • What happens if it fails?
  • How long is it due to last?
