Meanders and Oxbow lakes DUE IN 22/9/16

Task: to produce a fact-file all about meanders and oxbow lakes. You have 2 weeks to complete this project and this should give you an indication as to what is expected.

Here is some key information to remember as you work on your project:

  • You can present your project in many different ways; you can produce a physical project book, or  you may wish to use IT, e.g. Powerpoint.

  • In your project you must include the following elements:

    • ‚ÄčA clear description on meanders and where they are likely to be found.

    • A clear description on oxbow lakes and how they are formed

    • a diagram to describe how an oxbow lake is formed

    • a glossary of terms which may include vocabulary such as deposition and erosion.

  • Your project must be handed in on the 22nd September.


You can be as creative and imaginative as you like with your presentation! Remember: I have given you long time to do this so I want it to be planned well... no spelling mistakes please! Of course, you can ask a parent or guardian to help you. You may even want to form a little homework club with your friend so you can help each other out.


If you are struggling to access the internet at home, or you do not have the required resources, please come and see me and we can arrange that you work on your project at school.
