What is a River?

LI: To identify and describe the features of the Tamaki River

This week we have been learning about what rivers are, their unique attributes and how to label them. We then created a DLO about the Tamaki river and its history. Did you know that the Tamaki River was one of the busiest rivers back in 1870s. Using our knowledge that we acquired, we showcased the features of the Tamaki river using an aerial map. We then compared the Tamaki River with a prominent river in the world. Our group chose to look at the Nile River. The Nile river is the longest river in the world that travels through 11 countries!  Finally we made a comparison of the two rivers.

We found this activity interesting because we learnt new informations about the Tamaki River and the Nile River.
