|Abstract: ||The phrase “the Real Map of Ireland” is a statement established to highlight that the map of Ireland land area also includes our marine resource.
In fact the area of our marine resource is ten times larger than our land area above the sea.
This makes Ireland one of the largest maritime States in the European Union.
Establish what an area is and how to measure it.
Compare sizes of areas: e.g. the area of the classroom, school property, backyard at home, local park, farms, cities, counties, countries
Identify what resources can we use that are on land in the “areas” … what would you find in a park, farm, etc|
