Trip to White Scar Cave

 
The boys loved their trip to the longest show cave in England and the UK. They learnt all about the different features including the waterfall which was discovered by Cristopher Long in 1923 who was  holidaying in the Dales, Geological information such as the limestone formations in the rock, stalagmites and the colourful formations of the chemical compounds of Iron. Their tour guide explained everything in detail as they ventured through the cave. They loved exploring the whole cave, getting slightly wet and squeezing through the gaps in the rocks.
 
After the visit I printed out the worksheets under the 'Education' section of the website to reinforce what they had learned which can be found here: http://www.whitescarcave.co.uk/WSC/media/WSCMedia/Files/Worksheets.pdf
