Creating our own watershed!

In Geography we have been looking at how rivers are formed. We gathered resources from around the classroom to create a watershed. When precipitation falls on mountains the line that divides the mountains is called the watershed and this is where some of the precipitation is collected and then delivered to lakes, tributaries and rivers. By recreating this in the classroom, the children could see how the water (the rain) runs down the mountains and creates a river, lakes and tributaries.
