Over 7,000 Russian teachers have joined the all-Russian interactive lesson titled “Preservation of Rare Animal and Plant Species”. Through the lesson, schoolchildren learned about the importance of biological diversity and the actions that everyone can take to preserve it. The project started on October 4 on the World Animal Day and is being implemented by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in partnership with the ECA Movement.

During the lesson, schoolchildren learn about rare species of animals and plants, the reasons for their extinction and the consequences of human intervention in environmental processes. Playing tasks will take junior students on an exciting expedition trip to study rare animals, while senior students will role play managers of large companies and learn to assess the impact of human activities on the ecosystems. Most importantly, in a fun format, children learn simple actions that everyone can perform to save rare species of animals and plants.

Teachers, parents and volunteers can register on the website редкиевиды.рф and conduct a lesson by downloading all the materials for free. No special preparation is required to conduct the lesson. After signing up, project participants receive access to two sets of materials for junior and senior grades. Each set includes a teaching aid and a video guide to prepare for the lesson, a vivid animated presentation, a set of materials for interactive playing tasks and a folding book with helpful hints.

“This project is very important and useful for a modern student. It helps involve children in activities that develop and motivate them to have the right attitude towards nature,” recounts Maxim Korovin, a biology teacher at Novosibirsk secondary school No. 211 named after L.I. Sidorenko, “The lesson helped realize the problem of preserving rare species and prepared schoolchildren to follow simple rules, by observing which everyone can participate in the conservation of natural diversity and do good for themselves and for future generations.”

“The lesson was a breeze. The kids quickly joined the atmosphere of the lesson, partly owing to the colorful presentation and interesting information. The students especially liked the blitz quiz, from which they learned a lot about well-known animals,” says Elena Aleksanyan, a primary school teacher in secondary school No. 15 in Belorechensk, Krasnodar Krai, “Learning the reasons for the extinction of certain species of animals got the children thinking about the behavior of all the inhabitants of the planet Earth.”

After conducting the lesson, all teachers providing feedback with the photos of the lesson will receive an honorary diploma of the all-Russia project participant and a letter of gratitude to the school. Other participants will receive an official message of thanks from the World Wide Fund for Nature.

The project is implemented with the help of the Russian President's grant for the development of civil society awarded by the Presidential Grants Foundation.
