Here in Room 10 we are now the proud owners of a salt water aquarium!
Ruairí & Maria from Galway Aquarium came to our class today for an Ocean Explorer's Workshop. Maria began by giving us a quiz to see how much we know about the ocean. She then spoke to us about our relationship with the ocean and how we interact with it.
After this, Ruairí began to set up our tank. He taught us about the various parts of the tank, along with how to care for it. Once it was set up, he taught us about each of the fish before adding them to the tank. The fish we have are:
1 x Blenny
1 x Butterfish
1 x Prawn
2 x Mullets.
We are delighted to have an aquarium in our classroom and are really looking forward to taking care of our new friends for the next 2 weeks!
