An interactive site with presentations to assist with the teaching of many aspects of a river. This site is completed with pictures, photos and animations describing, for example, the water cylce, how a river flows, where the river meets the coast.
This resource should enable a child to:
study a period or periods in the history of the local village, town, city area, townland, parish or county; in fifth and sixth classes children should study periods not already covered in third and fourth classes
use evidence which is more diverse and more complex than heretofore
Suggestions for use: Might be useful inspiration for similar project in your school. Could be adapted to any river.
This site follows the River Trent from source to mouth, including aerial photographs, narrative and useful vocabulary along the upper, middle and lower course of the river. It has sections on River facts, Flooding, Settlement, Uses and Conservation.
