Agricultural exibition- Learning about ecological farming

work on "Stop Climate Changes" Posted on Sun, September 24, 2017 17:30:53

A
visit to MELA- an agricultural exibition

About
60 primary school children went to the exhibition of agriculture,
food, fishing, forest and gardening

All
the students started for the day excursion at eight in the morning.
They went to Mela by bus. After arriving there they first went round
the exhibition. During their walk they got a lot of information that
could be used for a quiz afterwards. They learned about ecological
agriculture and gardening.

The
main important question is: Where do all the products come from?
Everybody should buy regionally produced food which saves energy for
transport and is good for the environment.

Then
they learned about energy saving and energy production in
agriculture. Many farmers use solar energy panels for energy supply.
There are more and more farms that produce energy from liquid manure.
The most important fact is that they try to use renewable resources.

The
pollution of the environment during the last decades was a result of
the use of fertilizers which were often poisonous. There is a real
change today because the customers force the farmers.

During
their visit the primary school students learned more about dairy
farming. They were also informed about the problems of milk
production. Too many people want to buy cheap milk products and that
makes it hard for the farmers. They also learned how important it is
to treat the resources more carefully which means not to waste food.

All
the little steps help. smiley

It
was a fantastic day for all the kids , learning about farming outside
their classrooms.



A day in the wood

Respect
nature

A
day in the wood – Thursday, 20
th
July 2017

Class
4b

Surviving
freetime without technical equipment

Humans
and animals should be able to live in harmony when they share the
same place.

The
woods around us are such a place. Many years ago the parents and
grandparents of today’s schoolkids used to play in nature around
the towns and villages. Today it is not so common to spend freetime
outside and many children don’t know how to behave when they go
into the wood. It is not only a playground, it is the home of many
animals.

On
Thursday, 20th July 2017, 28 students went to “Letschower Wald”
with their teacher and some parents. When they arrived they met the
forester. They started with a quiz about wild animals. The adults
were surprised about the knowledge of the young students. Lots of them
have pets at home and know how to care for them. Then they learned
how to “read” animal traces. They got a lot of information about
wildlife and the ecosystem wood and collected ideas about how they
can support this system. Cleaning Schwaan and the woods around is one
step in that direction.



Lessons in the zoo

Influence of climate change on wildlife

Lessons in Rostock Zoosmiley

On Thursday, the 20th July 2017, 27 students of class 4a went to Rostock Zoo. The zoo is always worth a visit but this time they wanted to learn more about the living conditions of wild animals in a zoo.
The lesson started with a long walk. The students learned that many of the wild animals would be endangered if they would go back to their natural biosphere. The zoo staff tries to create a natural environment for the animals. That is not easy because a lot of energy is needed for monkeys for example. They need a warm surrounding to feel comfortable and of course to survive.
The students learned how Rostock Zoo uses environmental friendly technologies wherever possible.
The children had a lot of time to watch the animals. Some of them like the camels seemed to be sad. So the question is: Is it really good to keep them in a zoo just to present them to an audience?
But more people must be teached about the climate change and about the danger for the animals, so at the end it is good.
During class in Darwineum they learned more about the ecosystem and how living creatures on earth influence each other and also about the food chain.
Soon there will be a Polarium in Rostock Zoo which they are working on now.
There they will especially teach people about the influence of climate change on ecosystems.
The young students will definitely be among the first guests.



Stop climate change-students change ideas in workshops

We are in Nykobing !
Sophieskolen in Nykobing is a fantastic place for international student’s exchanges.
So we are lucky to be here again with these wonderful hosts.
Yesterday, on Saturday evening, we met at the ferry terminal in Rostock to start our trip.
On the ferry we could already talk to the Polish students and teachers. They could take our luggage to Nykobing. We had to take the “normal” bus. We were lucky, the ferry was in time.
The first evening was very nice. The Danish students were waiting for us at the door to welcome us and after a few minutes the groups were mixed and talking to each other. All the teenagers were happy about the delicious pizza later.
The warming up circle was a lot of fun this morning.
