A possible development study

Tim Lomas has considered the effect that weather has had on shaping Britain. He explores how weather conditions and human actions have affected these islands and the communities living here. He suggests three potential areas of investigation. First, he looks at how weather changes might affect crop failure and so lead to deserted settlements. Second, he links weather conditions and local resources to industry. Finally, he looks at how water and weather can create catastrophic flooding. He focuses on the use of timelines to identify patterns and connections. He advocates for creating research projects and investigations for children.
