On October 23rd and 24th, 2023, we participated in the fourth transnational project meeting at the Faculty of Education of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. We started with a project dinner and continued with a project meeting. The aim of the meeting was to develop materials for students, discuss the methodological manual and create a course for teachers training. Our partners from the university were excellent hosts, we managed to do a lot of creative work and at the same time there was a cheerful atmosphere.
What have we already managed to do in the project?
We have completed almost a year in the project and the first goal of the project – material for students on the topic of sustainability, environmental education and healthy nutrition – is getting off to a good start. The first four lessons from each concept saw the light of day, content, color, design and we are happy about it. We agreed on a manual of methodological instructions for teachers, on how to test the achievements of students in the project, we also managed the design of the training course for teachers.
We tried the first lessons in class with the students, and we are happy that they are interested in these topics. For example, they know how to make a Jojo from plastic lids as part of recycling materials, and they are starting to think about whether they buy healthy food in stores.
What awaits us in the near future.
The development of additional learning resources for students, 6 more lessons in Environmental Studies and 6 more in Healthy Nutrition is ahead of us. Later, we will start the piloting with the students and fine-tuning the already finished materials. Seeing ready-made colorful activities for students is a really great feeling, keep your fingers crossed! 🙂
