Did you know that if you could time travel between now and 500 million years ago, the landscape surrounding the Slieve Bloom Mountains (and indeed Ireland!) would look very different than what we are used to?  From tropical seas to mountain summits, there was a bit of everything at our doorstep!

 

 

This workshop encourages a better understanding of our geological heritage. Through visual stimulation, the students will learn about the link between local geology and the landscape surrounding us (suitable from 10 y.o.).

 

Requirements: slide show, requires use of projector or interactive white board
