We’ve got all the answers to children's river-related conundrums in our river fact file. 

Our education team created this pack for schools and youth groups, but it makes a great geography homeschool project for 7-11 year olds. 

Through information, pictures and activities, children will learn that rivers are full of life and have played a big part in shaping our country’s landscape.
