Great Rivers 2: The Ups and Downs of River Flooding

Second in a three-part lesson on rivers, this lesson focuses on the flooding that occurs in riparian locations. First, learners take a look at facts about the Amazon River. They read online materials and fill in a worksheet as they proceed. In small groups, they research famous flash floods. There are many resource links to reading materials, making this a terrific scientific literacy lesson in addition to it being an enhancement to your earth science curriculum.
