Download this classroom poster to help your geography students better understand river systems!
This poster has been designed as a visual aid for the classroom, to help geography students understand some of the main features of a river system.
Terms such as watershed, drainage basin, confluence and tributary will be reinforced by seeing where they sit within the river system.
And if you are interested in helping your students to learn more about river systems, you may be interested in our geography school trips focusing on rivers.
In the Costa Brava, you can do a river study with your students.
The Tordera River has a relatively short course, which means your students are able to study the upper, middle and lower courses of the river, all within a relatively small area. As well as learning more about river systems, they’ll also practise important fieldwork skills, including data sampling.
And in the USA, you can see the powerful effects of erosion with a visit to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon!
