LET'S SHINE SOME LIGHT ON LIFE

This interactively annotated tour will guide children through various natural environments that are important for understanding the role of sunlight as a basic requirement for life. Some environments, like areas around ponds will be familiar to children, and will serve to reinforce basic knowledge of our natural surroundings. The setting of a rainforest will acquaint them with new, exotic life forms, and the cave exhibit will show them that caves do not contain monsters, but interesting forms of life and art of ancient people. The children will become a small Sun, a provider of life-giving light. Explanations by a lecturer accompany the exhibits and interactive learning aids.
Targeting: Kindergarten, first year of primary school
Duration: 45 min
Educational field: Child and the world
Keywords: light, Sun, life, environment, forest, caves, prehistory, animals
Outputs – Students: Acquaint themselves with examples of both familiar and distant natural environments, and their diversity; acquire an understanding of sunlight's importance to plant and animal life; realize that environments, animals and humans all change over time, under the influence of external environmental factors
Price: Under 6 years for free + CZK 1000/lecturer, from 6 years CZK 100/student, teacher free of charge
Number of students: max. 30 students

DIVERSITY OF LIFE ON EARTH

A guided tour will acquaint students with the importance of the Sun and its light as a fundamental condition for life on Earth. Emphasis is placed primarily on the variety of natural conditions in various environments, linked to adequate or inadequate amounts of sunlight. The exhibition displays a wide range of items, from both living and non-living parts of the world. Exhibit items from various ecosystems (caves, soil, steppes, marshes, forests) clearly display traits typical for organisms from their environment.
Targeting: Younger primary school children (2nd – 5th year)
Duration: 60 min
Educational field: Child and the world, Biology
Keywords: light, Sun, ecosystem, nonliving nature, living nature
Outputs – Students: understand the key role of sunlight in the life of plants and animals; acquaint themselves with examples of various ecosystems and their conditions; separate and group organisms according to distinguishing characteristics created by the influence of their environment
Price: CZK 100/student, teacher free of charge
Number of students: max. 30 students
Reservations: online on rezervace.nm.cz, phone: +420 224 497 443
 

LIFE FROM CAVES TO TREETOPS

Durign guided tour students will discover various environments that document the importance of the Sun and sunlight as one of the basic conditions for life on planet Earth. The exhibition presents the organization of the living world and relationships between organisms in nature. Using several different ecosystems, it shows typical organisms for that ecosystem, along with characteristics common to such environments, as well as those that vary from one environment to another. The wide range of exhibit items includes fungi, green plants (like cereal grains), insects and vertebrates. Along with currently living species, there are paleontological and mineralogical specimens.
Targeting: Older primary school children (6th – 9th year)
Duration: 60 min
Educational field: Biology, Environmental education
Keywords: light, Sun, ecosystem, insects, vertebrates, Quaternary
Outputs – Students: understand the key role of sunlight in the life of plants and animals; acquaint themselves with examples of various ecosystems and their typical inhabitants; separate and group organisms into their systematic taxonomic placements
Price: CZK 100/student, teacher free of charge
Number of students: max. 30 students

LIGHT AND LIFE

The primary focus of the this guided tour is solar radiation as a building block of life on Earth, and its key role in evolution and diversity of life. It acquaints students with life in its immense diversity of forms, adapted to light or lack of light in various biotopes. In caves, they will examine organisms that live in absolute darkness, after that, they will 'ascend' through the soil onto wideranging steppes with large grazing herbivores and beautifully colored butterflies, until the entire experience is capped with a visit to the perpetual battle for sunlight in a tropical rainforest. Students will be directed with the aid of discussion blocks to considering and formulating hypotheses regarding the influence of sunlight or its lack on biotopes and their inhabitants, including humans.
Targeting: Secondary schools
Duration: 60 min
Educational field: Biology, Environmental education
Keywords: light, Sun, ecosystem, caves, soil profile, photosynthesis, tropics
Outputs – Students: explain the effect of sunlight or lack of sunlight on the life of plants and animals; observe typical characteristics of troglobionts; name basic input and output components of photosynthesis; name basic groups of culturally important cereal grains; know typical inhabitants of individual zones of tropical rainforests
Price: CZK 100/ student, teacher free of charge /
Number of students: max. 30 students
