  1. 1. Rivers! What makes a river flow faster or slower? By Sandy, Fiona, Brianna and Zia
  2. 2. Questions we were wondering? <ul><li>Why are there stones in the river? </li></ul><ul><li>How many rivers are in the Manawatu? </li></ul><ul><li>Which beach does the Manawatu river lead to? </li></ul><ul><li>Why does the river change colour? </li></ul><ul><li>Where is the longest river in N.Z? </li></ul><ul><li>When does the river flow the fastest? </li></ul><ul><li>Where is the longest river in the world? </li></ul><ul><li>When does the river flow the slowest? </li></ul><ul><li>Which sea does the Manawatu river lead to? </li></ul><ul><li>What animals live in the river? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Our hypothesis. Our hypothesis is: More water makes it go faster and less water makes it go slower. Less Water(400mls) More Water(800mls)
  4. 4. How did we test it? We tested it by using water, a pipe, stopwatch and a jug. Then we put the water into the jug and then poured the water in the pipe and we put the stick in it and timed how fast the stick went down.
  5. 5. Our results.
  6. 6. Our Conclusion. Our Result showed that our Hypothesis was right because the more water makes it go faster and the less water makes it go slower. Example: We Had 400mls and the time was 1.22sec. Then we had 800mls and the time was 0.91sec. 400mls 800mls
  7. 7. Other Research. <ul><li>Q. Which beach does the Manawatu river lead to? </li></ul><ul><li>The Manawatu river leads to foxton beach. </li></ul><ul><li>Q. Which sea does the Manawatu river lead to </li></ul><ul><li>The Manawatu river leads to the Tasman sea. </li></ul><ul><li>Q. What fish live in the Manawatu river? </li></ul><ul><li>There is Rainbow trout, brown trout and eels. </li></ul><ul><li>Q. What is the river source? </li></ul><ul><li>A. The river sources are Rainfall a melting snowfield and glacieria spring or the overflow of a lake. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Q. Do rivers always flow down hill? </li></ul><ul><li>Yes they do. </li></ul><ul><li>Q. Where do most rivers go? </li></ul><ul><li>Most rivers flow towards the another river, an ocean and a lake or other large body of water. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Other information. A river is a natural stream of water larger then a brook or creak. A stream or a river is formed when ever water moves down hill one place to an another. This means that most of the rivers starts up high in the mountains.
  10. 10. Social Action. We are going to make a sign and put it down at the river. To do that we would have to put a propose if they say yes we can then we would have to carve the writing into a piece of wood and put it on the pole.
