Summary

Learn about the world's greatest Mountain Ranges with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds.

A mountain is defined as any hill that reaches 600 meters or more. Mountains come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some have sharp, pointed edges; others slope more gently. The terrain of a mountain is made up of peaks, valleys, escarpments and plateaus. And the collective name for a group of mountains is a mountain range.

Two of the most famous mountain ranges in the world are America’s Sierra Nevada and Africa’s Atlas mountains. But there are bigger mountain ranges. In some places, there are whole chains of them. These are given the name cordillera. Across a massive section of eastern Australia spreads a cordillera called the Great Dividing Range.

What is a Cordillera?

This excellent and concise five minute listen on mountain ranges taught me things I didn't know: for instance whole chains of mountain ranges are called cordillera. Descriptions of the most famous mountain ranges, Sierra Nevada in the United States and Africa’s Atlas mountains are described, but others are also included. The dangers of mountain climbing are discussed, the thinning air atop the peaks, and the need for mountain climbers to carry oxygen. Great short audio for kids and adults!
