A river goes through an enormous number of changes as it moves through it's path. In this class, students will look at how the river characteristics change as you travel along the path and consider why these changes happen. Students will be able to see how these processes affect landforms they see in nature. River profiles are an important topic in Geography, this is a fantastic class to get to grips with some of the typical characteristics students should understand.
