  2. Mark each river on the map it belongs in.
  3. Label the countries or states that the rivers run through.
  4. Label any major cities along the rivers.
  5. Put the rivers in alphabetical order.
  6. Make a miniature book about each rivers or notebook page. Find out something interesting about each one. What wildlife lives near it? Any specific fish or water life live in it? What plants grow there? What people live around it?
  7. What lake or ocean does it feed from or empty in to.
  8. On your notebook page put things like when it was discovered and by whom.
  9. Are there any famous events connected with it?
  10. Make a salt dough map of one of them.
  11. Make a graph of the countries or continents involved. Show which ones have the most lakes.
