Upper, middle and lower course landforms
An interactive quiz. Can your students match a selection of river features to the correct river stage? From interlocking spurs to deltas there's a choice of three options. A great starter, plenary or quick fire revision activity and always very popular.
The long profile of a river
This is an activity where pupils use photographs to discuss how a river changes from its source to the mouth. Pupils can then sort statements into upper, middle and lower position on the river long profile. An interactive version of the statement sorting exercise is also provided.
River processes – Bingo!
This excellent starter or plenary is a fun class bingo game using the KS3 rivers topic. The resource includes over fifteen definitions and a bingo grid. The interactive activity matches key words and definitions for these physical processes. It could also be used as a GCSE examination revision exercise.
An excellent idea for a revision exercise on river vocabulary. It could be used as a card sort, a dominoes game or as a loop game. As such it could be a starter or used as a plenary. Excellent for for physical geography aspects of examination syllabuses but also for KS3 classes.
River Basin sort and match
A great plenary or starter to test understanding of river basin keywords and if students can recognise and match river basin features to a map and photographs.
Focus on key words and phrases for rivers with this fun homage to the popular game show quiz format. The Word document provides a standalone paper based version but the accompanying interactive version is ideal for the IWB for the whole class.
Rivers odd one out
This is ideal as a review of 'rivers' work. Students identify the term which is different, give an explanation and provide an alternative answer. It can be an individual, paired or group exercise.
The main flows of the hydrological cycle
Two interactive matching exercises to link the names of ten flows in the hydrological cycle with their definitions and to name the six phase changes of water.
