the features of the earths surface, such as mountains, plateaus, and plains.
a bank along a stream or river that is intended to prevent flooding.
a large bend in a stream channel that develops when soil is eroded from one bank and deposited on the other.

rain, snow, sleet, or hail.
a place where large amounts of water are stored for future use. Reservoirs are like lakes; they may be natural or made by humans.
