Garden Rivers

On Friday, we went out in to the garden to make our very own rivers! We used different gardening tools to form our river beds, and then used our knowledge of rivers to create the different features. We all created meanders, tributaries and confluences, then some of us went one step further and made waterfalls and rapids.

Here we are, working as a team to dig out the space needed to create the river beds:

Here you can see our tributary, confluence and part of a meander:


Our afternoon was very successful as we demonstrated our understanding of the river vocabulary we've been learning. Plus, we definitely enjoyed digging in the mud!
