The handbook "Tiere live"

 

"If a child had no experiences in nature it won’t understood the ethical and economic reasons for conservation as an adult." (Rodrigo Jordan).

The authors of the handbook try to give ways to represent a direct experience of nature in the classroom. By using this handbook in classes and extracurricular environmental education it should help educators to get children and young people closer to our local animals again. Together with their students they make a valuable contribution to the conservation of biodiversity.

The handbook includes concrete descriptions and materials for 64 tested and tried actions with animals of 12 different groups (for example birds, beavers, bats, butterflies, earthworms, snails). Two special chapters focus on the permanent keeping of animals in schools and animal tracks. The selected topics and animals are particularly suitable for school with reference to the curricula, hygiene, laws and availability.
