Geography Laois - I love my county!
As Phase 2 has been launched and we are allowed to travel within our county let's have a look and see what exactly is there to see and do in this great inland county of ours! Did you go anywhere today? I went to Portarlington (you know the great side of Laois !!!!) but anyway I was thinking what places can we go see, there's Derryounce Lake, Emo Park, Odlums Mill (kept Ireland going during the quarantine ) Slieve bloom mountains . And many more.
Please have a look at the laois Passport and plan a trip around Laois where will you start, stop first? How would you calculate your distance travelled? Could you go in a loop? head in one direction and come home another ...how many stops/ sites would you stop at? you could include stops at granny's house or cousins houses!
You can use the passport to help you, also use google maps for distance, a calculator to add up distance travelled! This may take you a while so don't be under pressure to get it all completed today. You can complete in your geography notebook/ on a large sheet or in a booklet which ever you like! Have Fun,
Earth School - Quest 11
we'll explore the importance of biodiversity (bio, meaning life and diversity, meaning variety). Biodiversity consists of all life forms, their ecosystem, characteristics and how they interact. What makes ecosystems strong or weak in the face of change?
There are interesting pieces on the Amazon and the Coral Reef (in Australia) which may be of interest to you as we had looked into them this year.
From yesterday's video could you design and make a farm safety poster be a slogan.
A slogan ; a phrase that rhymes and gets across the warning like the example on the page Remember the danger factor when around a tractor! See what you can come up with!
You do not have to use the sheet provided it is an example you can create your own!
