Why Rivers Have Deltas - A MinuteEarth Lesson

Why Do Rivers Have Deltas? is a new video lesson from the folks at MinuteEarth. In the two and a half minute lesson we learn how deltas are formed, the role of the ice age in creating deltas, and why some rivers have more pronounced deltas than others.


Sources consulted in the making of the video are available in the show notes on YouTube.

Applications for Education
This video could be used as a short introduction to the topic of erosion. It's not long enough or deep enough to be a complete lesson, but it could become part of a larger flipped lesson. Take a look at using one of these five tools to create a flipped lesson.
