Disadvantages of the Tigris and Euphrates river?

One of the disadvantages of the Tigris-Euphrates river was its limited use for transportation. The northern stretches were shallow and rocky. The prevailing wind also blew in the same direction as the flow of the river. This meant you could not sail your boat against the current. Boats got upstream by being towed by teams of slaves trudging along the banks.

How is a river formed?

For younger kids (Ask your parents first before doing this):

Ask your parent where you can make marks in dirt / soil, the land outside your house.

  • First: Find a small stick. Fill a plastic or paper cup with water.
  • Second: Take these to the spot where you are allowed to play in the dirt / soil.
  • Third, find a spot where the dirt is tightly packed, not very loose. Use the stick to draw a "line". Keep moving the stick until you have made a "dry river bed". Leave in a few tiny pebbles along the edges, if you can. You can also make one part of the line a little deeper, but not much or the next part won't work right.
  • Fourth, go to one end of the "line" you made, preferably the end that is higher than the other end. Creeks, streams, and rivers typically flow from highest ground to lowest ground.
  • Fifth---- slowly pour the water into your "river" at the highest point. You will see dirt suck up some water--that is okay; rivers do that, too. Notice how the water flows downward along and through the channel you made, just like a river channel does with water it carries.
