The Great Rift Valley is the longest rift valley in the world at 3,600 miles running vertically through Africa; it ranges from 19 to 63 miles wide and can have an elevation of anything from 1,300 feet below sea level to 6,000 feet above sea level. The valley splits into two branches, the Eastern and Western Rifts in east Africa. At that size it’s visible from space!
These worksheets help students to investigate the Rift Valley in Africa by exploring how it was formed and how it may change in the future. They discuss why it is considered a geographical wonder and what they think would happen to its environment should it fill with water.
