Raging rivers

As part of our Raging Rivers topic, Team Meerkat made their own rivers in the playground. We used a variety of natural materials (borrowed from our school garden) to represent different types of rock, land and plant life. Each group made predictions about the path the 'river' would take and we tested our hypotheses by gently pouring water at the source and observing the route the water took. We were able to identify features of rivers that we had learned about in our first geography lesson - meanders, tributaries and the river mouth to name a few.
