This DVD offers an insight into the plants and animals typically found in the meadow biotope. In an easily comprehensible way, primary school pupils experience a small, exciting world where various kinds of animals and plants co-exist. The film aims at improving the children’s understanding of animals and at arousing their curiosity for plants and animals. The DVD covers the following aspects of the topic of “meadows”: Types of meadows (creation of a meadow, marshy meadows, dry meadows, wet meadows, fertilised meadows); plants of meadows (cowslips, buttercups, dandelions and many more); layers of the meadow and animal habitats (on plants, on and in the ground, etc.); interference with the diversity of species (effects of mowing and fertilising on the meadow); protection of the meadow (responsibility of humans for nature); use of meadow plants (in medicine, human diet).
