Creating models of Rivers – Maple Class

As part of our river topic we have been learning about the journey of a river from source to sea.  We have created our own models of rivers on this journey, including mountains, valleys, ox-bow lakes and flood plains in our models.

First of all we created the 3D model using scrunched up paper which we taped in place; this was covered in mod-roc which was extremely messy!

After this we covered our models in tissue paper and then labelled the different features of the river’s journey on them
