Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
On Wednesday 8 November, the Primary 6 year group went on a school visit based on our planet Earth. We went on a Geowalk and we also went to the National Museum of Scotland. We waited at the bus stop ready with our day tickets to go on the bus. We travelled to the museum and we met Mr Miller outside the Talbot Rice Gallery. Mr Miller was one of the scientists who was at a volcanic eruption.
We split to two groups: Group 1 went to the museum first to do a workshop about volcanoes, which was very interesting, and Group 2 went on the Geowalk with Mr Miller. He had examples of different rocks to show us. The rocks were igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. We looked around to see if we could find the different kinds of rocks around us as we walked. We had lunch when we got back to the museum and then swapped so that we did a different activity. One of the very interesting things we saw at the Museum was that there are actual fossils in the floor, which makes it different to other museums. Before we knew it, it was time to go back to school.
