Fifth form classes I
Right now we are able to offer the following subjects for the fifth form classes I
- Curious birds: penguins are extremely accommodated water animals. Here in the zoo you can watch them very well and get known of them at many stations.
- All birds are already here: snowy owl, kea, Northern gannet, penguin – we discover the birds in the Zoo am Meer.
- Why does an polar-bear do not freeze? Nanuk, the watchman of the pole – how theInuit call the polar-bear, can be very realistically observed in the zoo and you can trace the secret of his thick fur.
- Show your feet: How do the animals in the zoo move? How does the chimpanzee, the cougar or the penguin “run”? Has the appearance of the feet anything to do with the way of moving?
- The seal is a mammal: They drop living young ones and suckle them with mother’s milk. But how a seal is doing this in the water? Or below water? Or ashore? In the zoo there are three seal species. They are clearly differing – you only have to look carefully and to get some information.
For the next school year we are intending to elaborate these themes further and to prepare further subjects referring to genetics, propagation, neuro and sense physiology under zoo pedagogical aspects.
The themes can be discussed in the context of just a double-hour or much more extensively during several double-hours (all the day or as a project for 1-2 weeks). In this occasion the pupils have to pay for the entrance ticket only once. The working documents are provided for free.
