SAND ISLANDS OF THE MEKONG RIVER CAMBODIA

SAND ISLANDS OF THE MEKONG RIVER CAMBODIA

This is a study about sand - great quantities of sand supplied by the Mekong River and deposited within its wide reaches. It is about sand transportation, arrival, deposition and removal. The sand, with its high nutrient composition is regarded by Cambodian farmers as "the gift of the Mekong". Beyond the geomorphology of this sand is the way it affects the way of life of the Cambodians of the sand islands. The annual gift is usually manageable but in 2011 the Mekong flood levels were extremely high. Many from the sand islands were evacuated to higher/safer grounds. Even so, 2011 was considered to be a "disastrous year for many from the sand islands. Loss of life and considerable destruction of low-lying areas made this a year when the gifts of the river became overwhelming -particularly on sand islands that were severely flooded. To make this easier to understand you might consider linking this unit with one entitled "The Case of Chey Phy's disappearing island". Use the photographs to gain ideas about the way of life on the sand islands. "Step onto the islands" but have a care when near the sandy banks of the Mekong River because they are prone to collapse.

Rivers - Identifying features of a river system

Rivers - Identifying features of a river system

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 children and is part of a wider Rivers unit. It is a good introduction to the topic as it exposes children to key river concepts and a wide range of related vocabulary. The presentation first recaps the main processes of the water cycle. It then introduces some of the well known features of river systems (e.g. waterfalls and lakes). In the group activity, children are then challenged to match eight features of river systems to photos, satellite images and maps. This activity can easily be differentiated by giving groups different numbers of cards. Finally, the worksheet activity asks children to identify the same features on a simplified drawing of a river system. It is differentiated three ways. LA – Children identify river features and complete fill in the blank definitions. MA – Children identify river features and write their own definitions of four simple features. UA – Children identify river features and write their own definitions of four more complex features. If you like this resource, please review it! I will happily send you a free resource of your choice in return for a review or useful suggestions/feedback. Contact me at eddiebray@yahoo.co.uk.
