River Study - River Darent
 You are here: Homework Help > Rivers > River Darent >

Our students learn how to how to measure the width, the depth and the flow of the river.

We measured the WIDTH using a 30 metre tape measure and stretching it from bank to bank. We had to keep it as taut as possible to be accurate.
We measured the DEPTH of the river using a metre rule.  
We measured the FLOW of the river by throwing plastic balls into the water. We noticed that the middle of the river flows faster than the sides.
