Landforms and Water Features
3rd Grade, Science Unit 6
By Kate Akhtar-Khavari

What is a

is a feature of Earth's surface. They are formed through natural processes over time.

is the low land between mountains or hills. They are sometimes formed by water or ice passing between hills and mountains.
A canyon is a valley with steep sides that was carved by flowing water, like a river. The river slowly chips away at the sides of the mountain or hill, making the canyon deeper and wider over time.
A plateau is a flat plain that is higher than the land around it. Plateaus is formed when flat land is pushed up through the Earth's motion. Plateaus are sometimes found near mountains.
A glacier is a large, thick sheet of ice tat moves across land very slowly. Glaciers cut paths into the ground as they move along. As they move, glaciers bring with them rocks, dirt, and sand.
A river is a large body of flowing fresh water. Rivers flow into larger bodies of water, such as oceans.

What is the difference between a canyon and a valley?
Mountains are areas that are much higher than the land around it. They are formed by crust of the earth pressing together and moving upward. Usually mountains are a part of a mountain range, which is a row of mountains.
Is this a mountain or a plateau?
A lake is a large, still body of water surrounded by land. Most lakes are fresh water, not salt water.
An ocean is a vast area of salt water. There are 5 oceans in the world.

Can you circle an ocean?
A plain is a broad area of flat land. Plains can be grasslands, forested, frozen, or deserts.
Deserts are areas that receive very little precipitation. Deserts can be any temperature, but all deserts are very dry. Although there is little water for plants and animals, deserts have plants and animals.
