River landforms on the River Tees


Learning Objectives: 1.) Identify major landforms using an example of a UK
river valley.

Starter Activity:
Describe where the River
Tees is using the map

5m

Where is the River Tees?


The river tees is an
important river in the
North East of England.

Source of the River Tees

The source is in the


Pennine Hills near cross
fell at a height of 893m
above sea level.
It flows for 128km in an
easterly direction
towards the North Sea,
where the mouth of river
can be found in
Middlesbrough.

Mouth of the River Tees

Learning Objectives: 1.) Identify major landforms using an example of a UK


river valley.

Upper course landforms


on the River Tees

High Force waterfall and gorge is


located in Forest-in-Teesdale in
the upper course.

The river drops 20m to create a


waterfall.

The waterfall is formed due to


resistant rock called dolerite.

The underlying darker rock with


horizontal layers is the
carboniferous limestone.

As the river plunges over the


dolerite it undercuts the weaker
limestone forming an overhang.

Over thousands of years the


retreat of the waterfall has
created a steep sided gorge.

1) What evidence is there from the


photograph that the waterfall used
to be more extensive in the past?
2) What is the evidence that the
waterfall is retreating to leave a
gorge?

Task: Map Skills using the River Tees Case Study.

Task:

1) Locate grid 3810, locate the river.


What types of lower course landforms
can you identify in the surrounding areas?
What? Where? How do you know?
2) Locate Sockburn 3408 Draw an
englarged sketch map to scale x2 of the 4
grid squares so that each grid square in
4cm.

Extension: Why do you think this area has developed for industries?
Meanders, levees and floodplains near Darlington
The map shows the river flowing from West to East over flat lying land.
All along the middle course there are lots of examples of meanders, levees and
