As a part of the natural landscape in which our children grow up, the forest with its flora and fauna is an important subject in primary school teaching. The focus of the systematic discussion of this versatile habitat is, of course, the children’s spontaneous, all-round experience of the forest. However, in particular with the animals and birds of the forest, it is not always easy to enable the children to have a real-life encounter. This DVD is aimed at helping the children to get familiar with the forest habitat in the course of a year. The film addresses the following topics: Early bloomers, courtship and breeding behaviour of selected forest birds, ground dwellers, the badger family, the fat dormouse family, forest fruits and the forest in winter. The DVD is excellently suited either as an introduction to the topic of forest or as a tool offered to the children for individual tasks or project work.
