A set of teacher’s notes accompanies this resource. This is for teacher information only and is not intended as a commentary to be read to pupils for every slide in the presentation. There is one set of notes in English and another set as Gaeilge.
This resource has been digitised from a filmstrip resource made available to schools by the Department of Education in the 1970′s and 1980′s. Some parts made be dated and it is up to the teacher to make it relevant to the present day.
