We have been learning to find differences between Homes Long Ago and Homes Today.
We talked all about the types of houses we see around us today: semi-detatched house, terraced houses, detatched house, apartments, mansions and bungalows. Can you think of any others?
Here are pictures to remind us what each of the houses look like!
We found many differences between homes long ago and homes today ...
- They whitewashed their walls. We use paint.
- They had a thatched roof. We use tiles or slates.
- They used candles for light. We have electricity.
- They had a fire for heat. We have radiators.
- They went to the well for water. We have taps.
Can you think of any more differences? Please add them as a comment!
