    Parks and public gardens of our cities

    Schools that have applied to take part in this project wish to design and implement a shared pedagogy about the heritage of public gardens in Europe, under the heading: "Parks and public gardens of our cities." Having discovered and investigated the public spaces in their environment, students will make a virtual presentation of the city gardens and parks, using a slide show. A squirrel, in the form of a stuffed toy, will go into every school, with his travelbook (to be written by the children). It will collect pictures and texts about the public gardens that it will discover. Then, students will develop strategies to study a chosen area. This would allow them to explore different possible approaches : - artistic : public garden in the future, singing-gardens, - historical : statues - scientific : preserve green space, flora and fauna, - architecture : maps, inventories, landscape architecture We would like to realize the following : the first year : - communication that helps us to know each other better (comparison of cultures, of daily life etc.) - discovery of the parks, through the journey of the squirrel. And, gradually, through the subject : "Parks and public gardens of our cities" - herb collection - writing a story taking place in an European park.

  • Scientifical website

    Very heavily involved in research and in new technologies, the students have made this common website. It presents, for each partner, the trees of his environment. This website allows everyone to discover but also to compare the botanical richness. This website was managed by each partner, and is made so that it is always progressive. http://sites.google.com/site/9herbarium/
