2 The Waterfall vocabulary Theme 1, Story 3 Key Vocabulary

3 What is a waterfall? What is a waterfall? Quiz

4 boulders  Large, rounded rocks  We set up camp on a sandy flat beside a pool in a ring of boulders. Quiz

5 canyon  A deep valley with steep walls on both sides, formed by running water.  Then we waded against the little rapids deep into the canyon. Quiz

6 cauldron  A large pot used for boiling  The waterfall roared by our ears into a great rumbling, boiling cauldron far below. Quiz

7 rapids  A group of small waterfalls in a river where the water flows very fast.  We hiked farther upstream, against little rapids, picking our way among slippery boulders. Quiz

8 scouted  Observed or explored carefully for information.  I scouted a way, alongside the falls, and then we climbed like mountain goats. Quiz

9 ledges  Flat spaces like shelves on the sides of cliffs or rock walls.  We inched our way up and up - the tips of our toes gripping thin ledges, our fingers finding cracks. Quiz

10 sheer  Very steep  I never felt more anxious - seeing my parents clinging to that sheer rock - or more proud, either. Quiz
