This particular image is fantastic for teaching about geomorphology and river systems. Students can 'see' the historical layers of a meandering stream winding it's way across the landscape. Connecting the physical geography to human geography, analyzing the flood plains can help explain the land use and settlement patterns in this Mississippi Delta image.
UPDATE: Here's another meandering stream image (Willamette River, Oregon) that shows the dynamism of fluvial processes quite nicely.

Tags: APHG, unit 1, unit 2, unit 3, unit 4, unit 5, unit 6, unit 7.
It's Worth knowing about it!
