Stream Table

Stream Table

In this activity, learners use aluminum trays and wooden blocks to form stream tables to investigate river formations in two different landscape scenarios. Learners compare and contrast how the formation of the river differs if the topography of the land is changed from a flat plain to a terrain with hills and valleys.
