RIVERS (Unit 9 - Science Y5)

We will start a new topic: THE ENVIRONMENT. Along this topic we will focus our attention in three main points:
  • RIVERS.
  • CLIMATE. 
  • VEGETATION AND FAUNA.
We will start with a new THINKING ROUTINE: 3-2-1 BRIDGE. With this new thinking routine you are going to reflex on what you know about the topic now and at the end of it how much have you learn or what have happened with the topic in your mind and how are new things connected with the previous ones. I mean, what kind of bridge you have built during lessons about the topic. 

So take you notebook and please write the title of the new topic and draw this chart.

TIPS: Maybe to write an analogy or a metaphor will be very difficult for you in a foreing language so we invite you to write it in your own language, in this case Spanish. Here you have some examples that could help you to do it. ANALOGIES: "El perro es a ladrar como el gato a maullar". "Piloto es a avión como maquinista es a tren". METAPHORES: "El trabajo es pan comido" "Tus ojos brillan como diamantes".

LET'S MOVE ONTO THE FIRST TOPIC RIVERS:

First you are going to watch this video but please pay attention at the end of it you will have to answer these two questions:
  • Where is it collected the rain water on land?
  • How are the deepest areas of the ocean?

RIVERS
A river is a body of moving water it starts high in the mountains and flows into sea, lake or another river.

The course is the route which a river takes.

The flow is the amount of water which a river carries. 

LAKES AND RESERVOIRS

Lakes are large bodies of water surrounded by land.

Reservoirs are artificial lakes. 


We use water from reservoirs to irrigate fields and for human consumption.

WATERSHEDS IN SPAIN
Watershed where all rivers flow in to the same sea.




There are three watershed in Spain. 
CANTABRIAN WATERSHED: 
  • It has rapid and short rivers. 
  • The flow is abundant and constant.
MEDITERRANEAN WATERSHED: (Except for Ebro River)
  • It has short rivers.
  • The flow is irregular.
ATLANTIC WATERSHED:
  • The flow is abundant and fairly regular.
