Visiting a biotope
The Rocket Class went on an excursion to a biotope and studied animals and plants which live in the element of water. Unfortunately it was the only cold day during the last six weeks and frogs, turtles and dragonflies hid themselves somewhere under water. But the pupils saw a lot of small water animals, smelled at herbs, asked questions about insects, bees and under water growing plants. Again they experienced that water, earth, air and light (from the fire of the sun) belong together and make life possible. With this excursion the Rocket Class finished their elements-project. We watched a lot of photos of the project and listened to our elements-song in the afternoon. Pupils and teachers agreed that this was a really good experience! Maybe we will do a small exhibition for the school.
