The Colorado River

As a project for school we have to study a river. We got to pick the river and then write a project on it. I picked the Colorado River. I wrote an intro and have done the front cover. Today I wrote some of the basic information. I wrote:

The Colorado River

The Colorado River is located in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California. It is the principal river of the south-western United States and north-western Mexico. It is 1450 miles long (2330 km). It starts in Colorado and ends in Baja California (Mexico). This river supplies more that 2.5 million people water and irrigates 3.5 million acres of farm land. This river eroded the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is located in Arizona and is one of the biggest tourist sites in the world. Many people go and see this wonderful place watching the river flow by. But there are many other places other than the Grand Canyon of course!This river has many tributaries which are: Gila River, Colorado River Aqueduct, Virgin River, Little River, San Juan River, and the Green River.
