Catherine Daly (Education Officer- Killarney Heritage Centre) visited R3 & R4 this week. The first part of the science workshop was a presentation of a large collection of stuffed animals. Catherine explained to the children about mammals, predator/ prey adaptions, mammal ecology and conservations. The children learnt so much about rabbits, hares, foxes, badgers, pygmy shrews, pine martens, deer etc.
The second part of the workshop involved the children going outside to collect a variety of bugs. They then examined all of these bugs under the microscopes.
Here we share some images of the children actively involved and engaged throughout the workshop.
