Learning activity details

During the project pupils learnt in classroom and outside, too. We visited farms, zoo, national park, animal shelters. They learnt about pets, farm and wild animals, kept diaries about the evolution of pets. They were wild life watching with hunters and observed their living environment and learnt their eating and reproduction habits. We visited dairy farm and lamb-farm. They followed up the developing of baby sea-calf in the zoo. They became volunteers at animal shelters and they are working there regularly. They made website and photo-gallery to publish their experiences. They made flash games to test their knowledge.
