The Earth's Physical Features
With. The earth is covered by physical features. Let's discover some of these physical features. The first physical feature of the earth that we'll look at are the mountains. There are mountains all over the world. This picture is from la teba. We're going to define physical features as landforms that can not be easily moved. In this picture, you can also see a mountain. The landform on the right is a hill. A hill is smaller than a mountain. The landform between the mountain and the hill is a valley. Valleys are the land that comes between the mountains. This is a picture of Lake Yahoo, a Lake is another physical feature. What other physical features do you see in this picture? Can you see the mountains surrounding the Lake? Do you think a water pedal from a rainstorm would be a physical feature? It's not because it's temporary and can be easily removed. In this picture we have two other physical features.
The easiest one to see is the river. The land around the river in this picture is called the plane. Planes are flat land, planes are usually good areas for farming. This is a plateau, a plateau is very similar to a plane. They are both relatively flat. The biggest difference is that a plateau is at a high elevation and the plane is at a low elevation. The hazardous physical feature here is a volcano. You can see that this volcano is starting to erupt, not all volcanos are active. Many are dormant and have interrupted for many years and may never erupt again. Volcanos are a beautiful but at times dangerous physical feature. We'll be planning for an it makes me feel so fun again control my brain what in that picture could be a physical feature. Let's start with the water. Water by itself isn't a physical feature, but as a body of water it is. This is the ocean and ocean is a physical feature. Also, you can see the island, which is also a physical feature. This picture is from Thailand. Jason waterfalls please stick to the rivers and the next step for you to I don't let you don't have it your way or nothing at all but the beautiful physical feature here is a waterfall.
It is in the middle of another physical feature, a river. This is a picture looking away from copan ruins. You can see the mountains. There is another physical feature here, and no, it's not the little House. It's the forest or Woods. A forest is a physical feature because it can be easily removed. Forests are disappearing all over the world, but you can't go in one day by yourself and move the forest. A tree on the other hand is not a physical feature. Only when the tree is with many other trees, it becomes a forest. And a physical feature. Buildings are not physical features either. Even though these buildings in copan have been standing for over a thousand years, they are not considered physical features.
