Listen to Ruth’s Riddle poem about a heritage site in Co. Clare. She tells us things about the place, but does not name it. We have to figure it out for ourselves. Ruth will guide you to explore a place in your own area, somewhere you know well. If you can, go there and have a good look around. What buildings, plants, animals do you see there? What is the atmosphere or mood? From your observations, write a poem of a few lines, telling us about the place - but do not tell us the name - leave us guessing!
Suited to children from 3rd to 6th classes.
