History Project 3rd & 4th

We had a very busy October learning all about Explorers.  We enjoyed discovering lots about Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Tom Crean, Amelia Earhart & Edmund Hillary.

Did you know that…

  • Marco Polo’s favourite food was pasta.
  • Tom Crean’s favourite ship was The Endurance
  • Tom Crean has two mountains named after him – Mount Crean! 
  • Tom Crean owned a pub called The South Pole Inn in Annascaul, Co. Kerry.
  • Amelia Earhart first saw a plane when she was just 10 years old.
  • Amelia was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean!
  • She didn’t like tea or coffee!

Have a look at our fantastic projects to learn more!
