How Plast teaches children to love forests (PHOTOS)
Yesterday, March 5, Uzhgorod Plast members held traditional off-site classes with Uzhgorod kids. Vivid pictures with spring mood were posted by the head of Uzhgorod organisation Lyudmila Livak on her page in Facebook:
"We learned how to honor the flag, learned to observe nature, to look for different tracks: spring, animals, people. We even had clean off the tracks of some the latter. We learned to be silent and to listen to noisy spring stream, we were looking for signs left for us by Chuhaistr, learned how the mini-hydro power station works, admired primrose and photographed them for mothers, observed how snowdrops are growing through the grass, checked on the trout and then again admired snowdrops, because they are worth it, we learned how properly fold the flag, received badges for good attitude to nature, and with a new enthusiasm collected seven bags of litter left by local natives, and on the way home met a postman Fedir Fekete. In short, we opened the season of adventurous journeys, but left the nature a little cleaner after" - Lyudmila accompanying the illustrations with the text.
Lyudmila told Uzhgorod.in that such classes are regular for students and trips are usually organized both with educational purposes, and to take the kids away from gadgets. It is the usual part of the Plast program, which includes weekly exercises. Today, for example, 9 pupils aged 9 to 11 years listened to the silence, cleaned the nature and admired primroses.
