This is a full 1 hour GCSE lesson that comprehensively covers river features such as meanders, floodplains, levees, interlocking spurs, waterfalls and deltas and how they are formed. It also looks at river sediment transportation and process. The lesson would also work as a revision sheet as we've found that students struggle with these processes and they're essential for progression in the exam.
The lesson is part of a unit covering 'Topic 3: Why is there a variety of river landscapes in the UK and what are the processes that shape them?' on the new Ed-Excel B spec, though it could easily be adapted to other specifications or graded down for KS3.
Aim:- 'To understand that rivers have a range of features and these are formed through erosional and depostional processes.'
This lesson covers the following themes:
- Floodplains & levees
- Interlocking spurs
- Erosion and deposition
- Traction, suspension, saltation and solution
- The role of geology in river formations
Ease of use is the aim, so the lesson includes a compact presentation with instructions and guidance in the notes section below each slide, it also includes referenced handouts with printing instructions and is of course, proof read.
