KS3 Rivers Lesson #5- Middle Course Processes and Features

(0)
This lesson covers the transportation processes that occur in the Middle course and looks at the formation of meanders. For this lesson there is a hands on activity that requires students to look at 3 different sized "particles" that they have to determine how they move. I used balloons, small tennis balls and balls of play-doh all acquired from the pound shop. You could also use other materials. Students also complete this task while listening to the song Proud Mary because, well, rolling on the river. Enjoy the pun!

This bundle contains all of the lessons for a KS3 unit on Rivers that goes over the processes and features for the upper, middle and lower course. The lessons start with an overview of the water cycle to introduce students to how rivers form. It then covers the upper course processes (erosion), features (waterfalls, gorges), middle course processes (transportation), features (meanders), lower course processes (deposition), features (oxbow lakes, deltas), and also includes an assessment designed as a mid-unit assessment to go over what has been learned so far. Excellent hands-on activities and can easily be adapted for GCSE!
