Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
We are really enjoying our digital exchange with Columbus School for Girls in Ohio. They have sent us many interesting facts about the state, including funny information such as “it is illegal to hunt whales on a Sunday”, which would be difficult for a state with no coastline!
In our Geography classes, we have been learning about National Parks in the UK and have learnt many things about our beautiful landscape. A National Park is a protected area where people can go walking, cycling, riding, fishing and even do water sports. They are usually places with rare species of wildlife or plant life, and spectacular scenery. We have prepared a summary of the information we have learnt about UK National Parks and look forward to sharing this with Columbus and perhaps hearing about American National Parks.
