Our Day At The Bog

After learning about the bog, our class went on a trip with all of the 4th classes to the Bog of Allen. There we learned all about the different plants and animals that live there.


We started the day with some pond-dipping. We had to work together to catch mini-beasts from a pond and figure out what we had caught using a guide. We then learned how the bog was formed by making our own mini “bog in a bottle” before going to see it and learning about the plants that grow and live there. Afterwards, we took a trip to the greenhouse to see “insect eating” plants and then learned about what it was like to work in the bog and depend on the bog years ago.


We finished off our trip with a frog hunt in the grass. Bhaineamar a lán taitnimh as an lá.
