Baltic Sea material for visitor lectures in lower grade schools
Actor: Nature League ● Year: 2016 ● Address: Annankatu 26 Helsinki, Finland
We have planned and developed a new Baltic Sea themed material package for visiting lower grade schools.
We have planned and developed a Baltic Sea themed material package for visiting lower grade schools. In our Baltic Sea ambassador activities we have now included also environmental education to lower grades of school. The Baltic Sea material package for visiting schools is planned to be used with exactly this age group. Besides a Baltic Sea themed slide show the pupils can do various activities:
- Captain Kustoo's Magic Dive - a story of the Baltic Sea
- Species quiz of the well known Baltic Sea species
- Deeds for the Baltic Sea (what can a pupil do for the sea)
- Baltic Sea bingo
- The small folk of the bladder wrack forest - colouring the key species of the bladder wrack zone, find the species and colour them out
We have also printed a colourful Dive to the Baltic Sea poster with some key species of the sea. The poster is distributed now in the beginning to the classes we have visited.
The Baltic Sea school visits are important part of environmental education and awareness raising work. We approach more also lower grade schools. The pupils know surprisingly much of environmental issues and the state of the environment, and our visits and materials support this learning and development.
The benefits for the organisation is increased visibility in the environmental education work. The children know the Nature League better and hopefully also feel that it is easy to approach. They possibly will be interested in our courses and camps and will become our members etc.
The action is mostly voluntary. The Baltic Sea ambassadors are voluntary, even though a small compensation is paid for the classes they have held. The updating of our Baltic Sea material has been made by volunteers without any compensation.
