A visit to An Gáirdín provides your class with a wonderful introduction to the magical world of nature.
Children discover how native hedgerows are the busy highways of Ireland’s countryside. They learn about energy cycles through the hands-on preparation of organic soup. The ‘Wonder Trail’ provides them with the opportunity to encounter woodland, a pond, wildlife areas, composting and organic growing, as well as rainwater harvesting and renewable energy technologies.
An Gáirdín is an accredited Discover Primary Science Centre and all activities incorporate and link the four strands of the SESE Science curriculum.
