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.
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.
Sometimes, as the water travels down, it hits a layer of rock. This makes a waterfall. Close up!
Small streams that join the river are called tributaries.
Large ‘s’ shaped bends and curves in the river are called meanders. Close up!
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.
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.
Let’s see if we can remember all the things we saw on our journey. Source Waterfall Tributary Meander Mouth

MEANDER A meander in general is a bend in a sinuous watercourse. A meander is formed when the moving water in a stream erodes the outer banks and widens.
MEANDER Most erosion normally occurs on the outside bend of a meander. This is because the velocity (speed) of the river is faster. As well as the water.
