On February 25, 2019, teachers Todorka Nane and Nadica Nane carried out the daily activity “Herbarium” as part of the monthly topic “Collections” from the Eco Section of the Annual Program for extracurricular intercultural activities for the fifth grade.

With the help of the encyclopedia, the students were introduced to the plants, their parts, as well as the term herbarium. They, along with their teachers, looked over and described some dried leaves, using which they made posters afterwards.

The goals of this activity are fostering a caring and responsible attitude towards the plant world, deepening students’ interest in research on the immediate natural environment, encouraging cooperation between students and teachers from both groups, encouraging and supporting a positive socio-emotional climate in the group as well as enriching the active vocabulary among students with new concepts in both languages.
