On Wednesday 26th of October, Mr.Griffin of the Lifetime Lab in UCC visited 5th class. We did a small quiz at the start and then we went through his PowerPoint. He gave us facts like over 50% of the oxygen we breathe comes from Phytoplankton, 76% of U.S. trade involves the ocean. There are three layers in the ocean, the Photic Zone, the Aphotic and the Abyssal Zone. The moon is 100% mapped, Mars is also 100% mapped but Earth’s ocean is only 5% mapped. In Ireland 86% of the people live within 50km of the coast. The ocean gives us more than just seafood. We enjoyed his visit and we look forward to his next visit.
