How To Make Your House out of Plastic Bottles.

An Argentine man, Alfredo Santa Cruz, has made his entire house, and much of the furniture, out of old plastic bottles.

See his story here on the BBC.

To help you focus your attention, here are three comprehension questions:

1. How did Mr Santa Cruz get his idea of making a house out of old bottles?

2. What special technique has he invented?

3. How many people has he taught to make bottle houses?

Write your answers on the Tag Board.

This follows the story of October 3, about the Manila residents who make roof skylights out of plastic bottles filled with water.

More next week.

And I wish all our readers a very entertaining Hallowe'en!

Yours,
Mike
