Bodies Of Water
By: Katelyn Jackson
Rivers offten end up at a ocean, or a lake. The Missori river connects to the Missisippi River! The Nile river, Is the largest river In the world. The second largest river Is the Amazon River. The Amazon river Is 6400 kilometres in length, 4000 miles.
Lakes differ to lagoons and estuaries, Due to the fact they are not connected to the ocean. A lake is also larger and deeper than other inland watter bodies such as ponds. A lake usually contains fresh water, but some can be salt water.
Around 70% of Earth's surface is coverd In watter. Ocean tides are caused by the earths rotating while the moon and sun's gravitation pulls acts on ocean watter. The pacific ocean contains around 25000 difrent Ilands, many more than are found In Earth's other oceans during winter the Arctic Ocean Is almost all coverd In ice!
Ponds are just like lakes but are smaller. Many ponds have dead tree branches In them. Insects that live In ponds, lay their eggs under watter. Ponds can be found all over the world.
Glaciers store about 75 percent of the world's fresh water. During the maximum point of the last ice age, glaciers covered about 32 percent of the total land area. Glacier ice crystals can grow to be as large as baseballs. During the maximum point of the last ice age, glaciers covered about 32 percent of the total land area.
