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!
If you have access to lab resources such as: -limestone samples -sandpaper -containers -weak HCl -stream table Then this is a good lesson for you. This lesson introduces students to the erosional processes in the upper course of a river. It is hands on and interactive and can be cross-curricular with science as it involves a lab format and students create and test hypotheses.
