The elementary school in ludwigsstadt was once again designated an environmental school at the beginning of december. Now that the sun is shining longer, the environmental flag can once again welcome all newcomers to the school from the mast.
In the past school year, the elementary school applied with the following topics: topic 1 – water as a habitat. Class 1 participated in the project class 2000 for the promotion of health, prevention of violence and addiction. On the subject of "healthy food healthy drinking" is also part of the program.
After a survey of the children’s drinking habits, various thirst quenchers were tested and water was found to be the best thirst quencher. The testers were amazed that the human body is largely made of water.
Class 3 focused on the cleanliness of the nearby habbach stream. Doris and jonas came with the DLRG’s aquamobile for this purpose. The students determined water quality and water resources and learned about the causes of water pollution. With the equipment of a stream researcher, the work began. Beaker magnifiers secured "booty. Stonefly larvae, amphipods, dog leeches, woodlice, tubeworms, mayfly larvae, boil fly larvae as well as pond mussels and snails were the spoils. In the classroom, the results were used to create a community project.
In the experimental laboratory
class 4 found out that water is more than just a liquid. Ice regulation training with the DLRG was on the program. In the experimental laboratory they found out that water can make things float or sink, that water can make the skin turn and that it can be destroyed with a winding agent and that you can create sound with water in a glass.
How much water does a person consume per day? Tips on how to use the precious water sparingly were discussed in the plenum and recorded in a table. A visit to the local clearing plant is still planned. A guided tour of the kodel reservoir is also planned.
The second theme was "our school environment becomes a classroom". The first class had a little guest every day in winter. A little squirrel visited the bird feeder in front of the classroom. Squirrels have been painted, kneaded, fed with nuts, traced in the snow and integrated in the new letter egg.
Class 2 went on a meadow excursion with ms. Schwarzmeier, the expert from the lauenstein youth forest home. Herb collections were glued into forest books, and herb soup was cooked and eaten. Class 3 documented the creation of the green classroom, which is also a nature grove, on the school grounds.
The flooded wet biotope was to be redesigned. With the help of a school mother, who is an architect by profession, the theater group and the third grade developed a concept, a flyer for the fundraiser and advertised with a theater piece in the forest in lauenstein. Mayor ehrhardt and representatives of the bavarian forestry administration supported the project.
After parents, schoolchildren and many other helpers got involved and the local economy donated large sums, the nature stage could be festively inaugurated.
For the opening ceremony "franconian forest, forest area of the year 2017" the theater group performed the self-written play "so soll es bleiben" ("this is how it should stay"), a piece about sustainable forestry, in neufang on. After this performance mr. Korlin from the forestry administration promised wood for the pedestals.
Class 4 planted a chestnut tree on the school grounds. The annual honorary prize of the district went to the rennsteig this time. District administrator marr took the opportunity to plant this tree together with mr. Kratkai from the orchard society and mayor ehrhardt.
