As an introduction to a meander, view this clip before 'Meanders combining'. Follow up using GIS for satellite images and maps of the river Severn. Expand on any previous work studied on river processes within a meander bend. Students could construct a series of annotated diagrams of meander migration laterally and downstream using ICT. There is an opportunity for fieldwork enquiry with data collection, presentation, analysis and evaluation.
