The Indus River

The Indus River is a major river in Asia which flows through Pakistan and through some parts of India. The river is about 3,200km long and has a drainage area exceeding 1,165,000km2. This river is the 21st largest river in the world. The Indus River was where the Indus Valle Civilization was created. This meant that the river was their source of water to get fertile land and grow crops to eat or sell. king

David this was an interesting topic, because you talked about the Indus River. Something that I didn’t know was that it was 21st largest river in the world. Another thing also it is 3,200km long and was where the Indus civilization was born. Something that was good that you said was when it was a fertile land, because of the river. Very Happy

The Indus

David, what you said is very true indeed. When you think about it, if the Indus River is the 21st biggest river in the world and it’s this big, imagine the size of the biggest one! It’s just unimaginable! The thing is, even though it’s really big, due to pollution and global warming, all these rivers are shrinking in their size. This is a very sad thing because this water source is a very important river, not only because there’s water and animals drink from it, but also because it can be considered ancient. It has been there since the very beginning and is still there today. In the ancient times, the civilizations grew around this water source. It should technically be classified as ancient!

Great Job David! The Indus River was very important for the Indus River Civilization. As you said, it gave them fertile land to grow crops. I think that the Indus River, as well as the Indus River Civilization, are very interesting. Good topic David! Very Happy
