We all need food, clothes, shelter and water to live. Early man lived in caves to protect himself from wild animals, heat, cold, rain, storms and dust. Animals, too, live in their homes to protect themselves.
Houses are made of different materials:
The big houses in the cities are called bungalows. A bungalow has many rooms and a small garden. It can be single storeyed or double-storeyed.
Modern cities also have tall buildings known as multi-storeyed apartments. These apartments have limited rooms.
These buildings have flat roofs. Many families can live in one such building. Places which are close to a water source or receive heavy rainfall have houses on stilts. These houses are built on bamboo poles. Some houses are mobile, that is, they can move from one place to another.
Such houses have wheels and are attached behind a van or a mini truck. A caravan is a house that moves on wheels. In Jammu and Kashmir, there are houses which float on water. These are called houseboats. Igloos can be seen in places where the climate is extremely cold. Igloos are houses made of snow. Tents are houses that can be carried from one place to another.
