Water Live Lesson - 2022
Our blue planet has five immense oceans and 113 seas. They represent 72 percent of the surface of the globe and are or have been connected, one way or another, to every molecule of water that can be found on Earth and inside every living being.
This Live Lesson is a morning of live workshops all about Water, with special guests from the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RSZZ), and Storyteller Allison Galbraith courtesy of the Scottish Book Trust.
Meet the Penguins at Edinburgh Zoo and learn about endangered Flapper Skates. Hear stories about Scottish legends of mermaids and kelpies, and learn how much water it takes to make some every day things.
