Short-term exchanges of groups of pupils: The Green Micro:bit
Zagreb, Gračani Primary School, 18-20/9/2019
Pupils and teachers from Vižmarje-Brod Primary School and Đuro Pilar Primary School visited Gračani Primary School from 18 to 20 September 2019 as their fifth Erasmus + project activity. Four students and two teachers from each school participated in project activities. From Gračani Primary School participated all interested students and teachers. The topic of the mobility was the educational path and the souvenir workshop. The first day pupils presented their schools and recent project accomplishments. They also participated in three different escape rooms: the secrets of chocolate, nature and space. After that they visited Botanical garden in Zagreb and had a short city tour on the Hop on Hop off bus. Pupils were situated in our pupils’ families so they can learn more about Gračani.
The second day pupils had a souvenir workshop and a land art workshop. Since the project includes making land art decorations and a windmill as central pieces of the educational path, the mobility included workshops about these things. Experts conducted the workshops: pupils worked on land art decorations and the windmill. Afterwards, they created different souvenirs: eco soaps, wooden pencil holders, decorative bags made from different herbs. The souvenirs will be presented at the Katarinski fair in Slavonski Brod in November 2019, where the next mobility will take place. After the workshops and school lunch, pupils visited an old Public School in Gračani, as well as a local Croatian Association of Military Miniaturists where they could see small models of military vehicles.
The third day they visited the Plitvice Lakes, the oldest national park in Croatia. They learnt about educational paths and the wildlife there. This was the last activity in Zagreb. Pupils gained knowledge about educational paths and souvenirs and made new international friends.
