In our reading group we have been looking at different bodies of water.
A lake is a big amout of water with land on each side of it. A lake can have freshwater or saltwater that runs to the ocean. Lakes can be so big that they split up into rivers. Lakes normally form by hollow land.Tarns are small moution lakes. KK
there are rivers in many parts of the world. Rivers flow down valleys from the mountains to the sea. Sometimes smaller rivers flow into bigger rivers. Some rivers flow out of a lake. In the mountains rivers they flow quickly. Sometimes they flow over rocks and make waterfalls. When rivers reach flat land they flow more slowly. Most rivers carry soil with them. The Nile is the longest river in the world it is in africa. When it rains alot of rivers often over flow. They cover the land nearby with water
