|All Along a River|
This site provides a complete and comprehensive center for students to learn about rivers. Animated pages about erosional processes, river volume, velocity, and transport are available for students to print or take notes on. Case studies on the Singapore River and Rhine River are presented with pictures. On-line worksheets cover erosion, deposition, and river patterns. An on-line study guide summarizes the information in a clear manner. Also included is an interactive river trail where students can explore parts of a river from its source to the delta where it empties into the ocean. Along the way it covers rapids, waterfalls, canyons, oxbow lakes, how a river grows, potholes, and meanders. An on-line quiz measures students' knowledge of rivers of the world.
