We started learning about The Great Famine today. The Great Famine was a devastating period in the history of our country. We looked at the website below which explains what life was like in Ireland in the 1840s and how the famine started.
We also talked about how different our lives are today. Back then, Irish people mainly ate potatoes for every meal and children even brought them to school for their lunches. We're lucky to have a great variety of food available to us today.
