Your granddad falls sick from the river water, so you follow the Indus from its delta to its source in the high Himalayas. When Mr Aquatina dumps you on the snowy mountainside, you suspect his company may be responsible. Will you and Dr Tasneem successfully navigate the river’s tributaries and meanders to prove your theory?


In this Experience, your class will learn about:

  • River features, including: the source, meanders, waterfalls, tributaries and delta
  • The flow of rivers downstream towards the sea, and the effects of erosion (e.g. on rocks)
  • Humans’ historical use of rivers, both harmonious and harmful (e.g. depositing waste)
  • The river Indus with its source in the Himalayas and its delta in Karachi, Pakistan

Resources for each Experience include:

  • For KS1 & KS2: Recap, Discuss & Quiz; Glossary; Reading Comprehension; Grammar & Punctuation; Writing Opportunities
  • For EYFS: Recap, Create & Play; Word Mat; Actions Storyboard; Song lyrics & mp3s (for some Experiences)
