Understanding the impacts of floods and droughts

This lesson is part of Investigating Rivers, a unit designed for upper KS2 (Y4-6).

It investigates rainfall patterns in the UK and how flooding can occur when too much rain falls in a short period of time. Students also explore the consequences of too little rain – i.e. drought – and the effects this can have.

In the comprehension activity, students answer questions based on a text called ‘Floods and Droughts’. It is differentiated two ways:

Easier: Students answer standard comprehension questions.
Harder: Students answer trickier comprehension questions.
