The Amazing Structure of a Hydro - Power Dam

WALT write an explanation including a definition, description and conclusion (of how a Hydro-power station works)

A hydro - dam is an amazing structure that makes electricity from water!

Firstly you build a dam to block the river.Water then builds up behind the dam.This is called reservoir.

Water then goes through the intake.Then it rushes to the penstock.
Then it rushes and hits the turbine and the electricity goes to the generator and then travels to houses and cities.

After the water hits the turbine it goes and rejoins the river. 

Hydro - Power is good because it is renewable.
