Which Roof is Tops? Grades PreK-2.
Rushton, Erik; Ryan, Emily; Swift, Charles
This introductory activity explores the advantages of different roof shapes for different climates or situations. It addresses questions such as "When you walk or drive around your neighborhood, what do the roofs look like?" and "What if you lived in an area with a different climate, how would that affect the style of roof that you might find?" This activity uses a time frame of 40 minutes. (Author/SOE)
