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?
