Any questions that you come across you could write down some answers or discuss them with someone at home. Make sure that you continue to read over the Knowledge Organiser every lesson as this will help you when it comes to completing the assessment at the end of the week).

Task One – read through the FIVE different rivers in Asia. Choose ONE of the rivers to do some further research of your own.


Task Two – create a poster for the river that you have chosen. Use the research that is attached below, the information in the PDF and your own research to complete this. You much have the following on your poster:

  • Name of the river
  • Source of the river
  • Mouth of the river
  • Length of the river
  • Interesting facts about the river (3-5)


Remember, this is a poster and needs to stand out and be colourful and readable.
