Canal walk 1 Feet First Canal walk What is a canal?

Canals are man made. A canal was used for transportation of food, coal and or horse manure. Now they are just tourist attractions. When the Romans came to Scotland they were the first to build canals. The difference between a canal and a river is that rivers form naturally.

The names of the canals are the Forth and Clyde and the Union Canal. The Union Canal is a contour canal but the Forth and Clyde is a lock and gate canal. The Forth and Clyde canal starts at Falkirk and ends at Edinburgh. The Union Canal starts at Bowling in the West and ends at Edinburgh in the East.

At Falkirk your boat can be lifted from one canal to the other by the new Falkirk Wheel. This is the world’s first mechanical boat lift.

By Katie Clarkson p4

The Union Canal starts at the Scott Russel aqueduct and ends at Edinburgh Quay. It is 31•5 miles (50•7KM) long. It was made to transport coal to Edinburgh. The Union Canal always stays 73 metres above sea level. The Union Canal is a contour canal. It has 2 lock gates at the Falkirk Wheel. The Union Canal opened in 1822. The builders called “Navvies” built the Union. The Navvies started to build the Union Canal in 1818. The Union Canal fell into disrepair because trains started to take coal and horse manure to Edinburgh. The Union Canal became less popular and eventually fell into disrepair in the 1930s. The Union Canal reopened in 2000 around the same time as the Falkirk Wheel. It reopened due to tourists wanting to have a boat ride on the Union Canal. The Union Canal became popular again.

Canal walk 2 Canal walk 3 Canal walk 4 Canal walk 5 In this photo the whole class
tried to lift this heavy sculp-
ture made by Ronald Rae but
we did not succeed.

On the first walk we visited the Falkirk Wheel. Prospect Hill Tunnel This is Burke and Hare's
killing method.
This is the Laughin'and
Greetin'bridge. It is called this because one side is easy getting through it so the man is laughing and the greeting side is because the workers come up to a tunnel. This is inside Prospect Hill Tunnel.
This is p3- 7 trying to lift a sculpture. Alan told us that they were sculpted by Ronald Rae. Alan said that if we all concentrated hard, we would be able to lift the sculpture. On canal walk 3 p3 to 7
saw the kelpies.
On canal walk 3 we played canalphabet snoop. We had to see and hear different things you would see on a canal.
This is macensey
This is James digging
a hole for a hawthorn tree. Our
Hawthorn trees are growing at the Falkirk Wheel .
This is the kelpies
at the Carron Sea Lock.
This is p.3-7 looking at
the Falkirk Wheel. This is Macensey
stretching so that she can measure the height of the trees.
This is is a picture of green slime in Prospect Hill Tunnel. We wrote a story about Prospect Hill Tunnel. We had to write about school children that went missing on a class trip through the tunnel.
This is a picture of p3-7 on
a boat to go on the Falkirk Wheel. This is Jason looking at the
Union Canal. canal walk 6 This is Heather

The Romans used
these as traps.

We played a game
where we were everyday objects
and they were all connected to trees. On our last canal walk we got to play in
the playpark. Thank you for viewing our presentation. We have enjoyed our Canal Walks with Alan and Heather.
