This month as part of Science we will be using keys to identify Irish trees. Last week we went out and about to explore! Why use the textbook when we can be active and learn at the same time? 🙂

  

In the school grounds alone we were able to identify birch, hawthorn and beech trees. Along our walk around the block we identified many other trees by observing their leaves and fruits. The tallest tree we identified was the horse chestnut tree.

  

We will be doing a focus study and group project on some Irish trees next week!
