Observe Rivers Forming

We set up a small hose to siphon the water from the bucket to rain on the land. The hose created the headwaters of our river.


The water eroded a channel. Our observer and recorder found cut banks on the meanders and sandbars in the channel.


Where the river came to the ocean it formed a delta. Sometimes two rivers joined to form tributaries. Sometime the river split near the delta to form distributaries. Then we tried a flood.
