Visit to the Ebro River
Here you can read some comments on our excursion to the Ebro River. It was windy and very cold, but we enjoyed and learned a lot.
On Tuesday 7th of February, we left the school at nine o’clock and we walked to the Bank of the river Ebro. It was a windy, cold and freezing day.
We went a lot of pupils and some teachers. We crossed the gateway and turned on the left. We arrived to a centre of interpretation of nature. In this centre there is an instructor was waiting for us. She divided us in two groups. Our group took some, one for six people and we looked at the ducks and other species of birds with the binoculars. There were some common ducks, herons, storks and seagulls.
Then, we had a snack to get energy and go on our walk.
After, we entered into the interpretation of nature centre, there were few things there.
The instructor gave us information about the birds, the fauna and flora in the River.
Then the visit finished and we came back to class. Violeta Fuertes 1ºC
On Tuesday we visited the banks of the Ebro River. When we arrived, Vicky, our guide, told us about the river and about the natural and artificial elements. She gave us binoculars to see the ducks. Then, she spoke about the different species, like the seagull or the royal heron and she showed us some pictures. Later, we went to a room and we talked about the definition of river and about the bank’s forest. Elena Fillola 1ºC
Last Tuesday, we went to de Ebro river and we saw some birds and trees. A teacher guided us. She explained the characteristics and the functions of the forest banks.
Give shade for a lot of animals.
Also give food and shelter.
Make beautiful the landscape.
Prevent the erosion.
There are many types of trees: willows, juncos, ash, poplars and carrizo.
They have deciduous leaves because they have water and mineral salts to make new leaves.
