The River Forth flows from its source about 30km west of Stirling in Scotland, and continues past Edinburgh to the sea. Stirling Castle is situated at a strategic crossing point. The river is shown on a map of the Central Lowlands of Scotland and its tributaries are explained.
Pupils could be asked to follow the River Forth from its source all the way to the sea. They could plot its path on a map and they could write a story or poem explaining the path the water takes on its journey to the sea. The clip could then be viewed as a climax to the activity and as the final answer to the task. Children could also produce a Powerpoint presentation which highlights and animates the travelling water from source to sea.
