Look in the hive
Edulands resource

Learning Phase: The class will visit the beehive with the beekeeper at least once.

Concept phase: The class gets the task to connect the beehive with a certain spot in school. This spot will be kind of a portal that connects the school with the experiences they had with the collaboration beehive.

The class will think of their experiences and what they found most fascinating. They will collect ideas of how to transfer their experiences to their school mates. (Honey tasting workshops…).

Mini-TOOL: Spa_Low_Sky
Edulands resource
To remodel the street space of Mittelgasse and Spalowskygasse, which is frequented by over 500 children every day. The focus is on redesigning the area in a way that is more citizen-centered in order to facilitate creative activities and art encounters. The methods proposed by the EDULANDS for Transition Project can strengthen relationships between students through shared learning and experiences outside of school. These approaches, which emphasize communication and creative exchange, can also foster stronger connections between teachers and students.
