The Scientists of Nature, Part I: Earth and Terrestrial lifeNatural History Museum of Crete - University of Crete
This educational programme is the first of the two programmes on scientists who study nature.
In this programme, we will get to know the scientists who study the Earth and those who study life on land. It relates to the school books “Environment Study” of the second, third and fourth grade of elementary school, as well as Environmental Education projects in general. Upon reservation of the educational programme, the NHMC provides the school with digital learning support materials, to be used by the class before and after the programme. The overall goals of the programme are the active participation of students in the learning process, the reinforcement of knowledge with the help of exploration and discovery, and learning in a pleasant and fun way.
Following the completion of the programme, students should be able – amongst others – to describe the work of nature scientists, approach various environmental issues using the scientific methodology, develop the scientific thinking and communication, confront a problem or question in an interdisciplinary way, and develop values and behaviours that will help them manage daily problems, through exchanging views and supporting their arguments.Note: The program is offered per class of a maximum of 25 students
