The River

Why are rivers so windy? Why don’t they flow straight?

This lesson will take you on the journey of water as it falls down to Earth, and flows through the land. You will learn about how rivers form, where they come from, where they go, and why they twist and turn instead of flowing straight. You will also get to make your own model of a river, and discover how rivers can carry pollution around.
