By Caiden, Laila, Andrew

Canyon by Caiden

A canyon is deep gorge, one with a small river or stream in it.

The Grand Canyon is a famous landform like this.

The Grand Canyon was carved by the Colorado river. The Colorado river was flowing through the canyon for many years, meaning in those years the river created erosion and the soil under the river slowly was moved farther up in the river. Scientists believe that the Grand Canyon took between 6.0 - 4.4 million years to form.
