(Choose The Allen, Avon, or Stour River)

 

Choose a local river to research and answer these questions:

 

- Where is it located? (which county, which towns or cities does it flow through)

- Where is the source? (where does it start)

-Where is the mouth? (where does it end)

-How long is it?

 

-any extra facts.

- what is it used for? What wildlife is in it?

 

*Are you able to visit it or walk by a local river this week or next? *

 

Please date your work and write the title : Local River Study

You can present your findings in your writing book, on a poster (stick into your writing book), or on a powerpoint. 

Please write in your best handwriting and in full sentences (remember capital letters for starting sentences and names of place) .smiley
