A primary Upd8 from The ASE and Practical Action

This Upd8 looks at a ‘big question’ facing Mehrab, a boy who lives in Bangladesh. and his family; what material should they use for their new roof?

Pupils gain an understanding of what it might be like to be a child like Mehrab, to be worried about your house being washed away by floods. They then look at different roof materials around the world and investigate which material would be the best for Mehrab and his family. Finally they look at the actual solution implemented by families like Mehrab.
