We Caused a Flood

We poured a whole pitcher of water near the headwaters to cause a flood.

 

We poured a whole pitcher of water near the headwaters to cause a flood. After the flood we saw that the land had been flattened. This flat area is the flood plain. Houses and bridges were buried or washed away. Sandbars and the delta were moved. Even the river channel moved after the flood. We were surprised how large an area was covered by water during the flood.

This was the result of our experiment. You can read about our methods and see our worksheet.
