Educational path

Visiting the educational path with an exhibition of snails from around the world

It will enable you to acquire practical skills in a natural setting in subjects such as:

  1. biology, nature

  2. geography (determining the directions of the world, working with a map and compass),

  3. mathematics (calculation of river width, breast height, height and age of trees),

  4. Polish language (improving forms of oral and written expression such as: description, story, diary page, reportage),

  5. art (conducting open-air art workshops, photography),

  6. will raise awareness of the need to protect the environment,

  7. will help shape desired attitudes through physical activity,

Thanks to the educational path, you can leave the school walls and get closer to nature and the immediate surroundings. People have a natural tendency to be interested in their place of residence. Therefore, it is worth basing on this need in teaching science subjects.

Workshops and demonstration lessons

Educational/ecological/nature workshops

While walking along the path, it is possible to organize educational workshops in the field of nature, ecology, Polish, mathematics and art. These workshops are aimed at developing respect for nature, nature education based on multi-sensory experience, awakening a young person's innate curiosity and strengthening relationships in the group. 

Demo lessons

Teachers or our employees conduct demonstration lessons about nature and biology along with an exhibition of snails, e.g.; "Young scientists in the field" Games using scientific methods will make us feel like real researchers and discoverers of nature. We will play Linnaeus and find out who is an ornithologist and who is a botanist or cartographer.

Advantages of the educational path

The snail breeding cycle is extremely interesting, which is why the Foundation has created an educational path intended mainly for children and teenagers with an attached playground. It raises awareness of the need to protect the environment, helps shape desired attitudes through physical activity, and raises awareness of the need for good organization and responsibility for the work performed. The path is a walking trail, marked out in such a way that it includes as many interesting natural objects as possible (nature path) documenting the individual stages of snail development. The purpose of creating an educational path is to educate through observing objects in their natural environment, which is not possible in a classroom.

The course of the educational path is planned so that interference with the natural environment is as minimal as possible. The educational trail is marked. Snails are a very graceful and popular creature. On the path you can observe the entire complex breeding process. The entire snail breeding process is the basis of the educational path and plays an important role in the educational process in the field of ecology and promotes the development of local ecosystems, which helps teach young people and children responsibility for the natural environment. After visiting the snail farm, the next element of the educational trail may be tourist attractions located in Wojcieszków and the surrounding area.
