Muireann and Graham’s fifth class were learning all about the counties, rivers and lakes of Ireland! We integrated our Geography work into our Art and we created topographic maps of Ireland using salt dough. We moulded the mountain ranges, and painted them using the colours of a physical map : Green for low lands, yellow for higher land, brown for the tops of mountain ranges. We then added in a few rivers and lakes. We included the Shannon, Lough Neagh and the Three Sisters (The Barrow, The Nore and The Suir!)
