1st year pupils have been looking for spectacular pictures in non-fiction books and hunting for the captions that explain what’s going on. Today, Ms McGhee’s class were in the LRC, and found some fascinating stuff.
Aaron found a picture of the atmosphere that made it look like molten chocolate! Can you imagine a chocolate atmosphere? It would certainly encourage more people outside 🙂
Sinead showed everyone a picture of a poor wee kitten in a book about Animal Rights. Turned out that not everyone in the class liked cats though, which sparked off an interesting discussion about whether the cat looked sad or just pathetic.
Stephen spotted a classic illustration of evolution, a topic which appears in Skellig, which Ms McGhee’s class have just started reading.
Finally, Hollie gave us a demonstration of a brilliant optical illusion. Hold your two index fingers horizontally in front of your nose pointing towards each other. If you move them slowly towards each other, you’ll see a wee sausage appear!
