This model also provides an excellent way to demonstrate the functionality and benefits of green roof technology, how it works, and how it will benefit the building.
For classroom teaching, the Assemble & Learn Green Roof Model comes with lesson plans and an activity guide at the Middle School and High School levels. The model is designed to be assembled by students within one 45 minute class period.
