Welcome to our Floating garden challenge, a great activity for all children learning at home or at school.

 

Firstly, they will learn about the difficulty that farmers in Bangladesh and the UK experience trying to grow crops on land that is regularly flooded. Then they will be challenged to make a model of a structure/garden that can float to enable farmers to grow their crops on.
Testing if the ‘garden’ floats in a washing up bowl, bath or garden pond is great fun!

The materials below include Guides for teacher and/or parents running the challenge, activity sheets, a PowerPoint with notes and certificates to award the children on completion.
