To continue with our previous topic of ‘The United Kingdom’ in Geography and ‘States of Matter’ and ‘The Water Cycle’ in Science, I would like you to research and find out all about RIVERS.
This is a mini project which can contain lots of information, pictures and diagrams. How you present your information and findings is completely up to you….Posters, leaflets, a book….it is your choice!
Firstly, I would like you to research the journey a river takes and the different stages and features of a river. Think about where and how a river starts, the journey it makes and where it ends.
Then, I would like you to research our local river, the River Tyne. Again, research where the River Tyne starts and where it ends. You could also research how the River Tyne has been used in the past for industry and business and how it is used today.
If you are out for your daily exercise and are near the river or near where the river meets the sea, you could take photographs and draw pictures of the human and physical features you can see.
Finally, you could research and record the longest and biggest rivers around the world. Maybe look into how they are used. Are they used in a similar way to the River Tyne or completely different?
There are many websites that will help with your research, including:
Plus there are many useful videos on Youtube.
I hope you enjoy researching this topic and have fun putting all your facts and information together. Remember, you can include pictures, diagrams and photographs!
I look forward to seeing what you produce.
