6th Class doing Local Studies

The 6th classes have started taking a look at the local area. We have been discussing the changes that have occurred by looking at historical maps. We have been discussing the possible damage that has been done to the IMG_0045local ground and how we could protect areas from further damage through soil conservation, preservatIMG_0048ion and recycling.

Also in looking at the local area, we have being working as tourist office workers in creating brochures to advertise Dublin 15 as a holiday destination.

We have been also studying the industries in the local area and having a look at the history of industry in Ireland, from the Vikings to the industrial revolutions and cottage industries. Last week we set up our own weaving cottage industry and created beautiful woven crafts for art(As you can see in the photos).
