2 This picture shows the complete journey of a river, from the source to the sea. Let’s have a look at this journey more closely.

3 The place where a river starts is called the source. The source can be in hills or mountains. Sometimes a river has more than one source.

4 Sometimes, as the water travels down, it hits a layer of rock. This makes a waterfall. Close up!

5 Small streams that join the river are called tributaries.

6 Large ‘s’ shaped bends and curves in the river are called meanders. Close up!

7 Sometimes, as the river flows down, lakes can form in hollows in the ground. This river does not have a lake, but there is some marshy ground near the meanders.

8 Eventually the river flows into the sea. This is called the mouth of the river. If the mouth of the river is very wide it is called an estuary.

9 Let’s see if we can remember all the things we saw on our journey. Source Waterfall Tributary Meander Mouth
