Science Week- Marine Tank
Mrs Burke and Ms Mc Nulty's Classes enjoyed finding out about the fish in our waters from Michael Cosgrove, Riverwatch, Derry. To find out more click on the link http://www.loughs-agency.org/ . He discussed water pollution, local rivers, types of Marine life. He showed two short videos; one on general marine life, loughs and rivers in the area , and the other specific to the life-cycle of the salmon. He presented three different starfish, an urchin and a whelk; the children got the opportunity to touch each. He asked many questions and also answered many questioins the children posed. it was a very informative, relevant presentation and the children realy enjoyed it.
