Teams from SPEA, Palombar and ATN are bringing the LIFE RUPIS to the local school classes in Portugal. So far more than 30 different activities, involving about 500 students and 25 teachers from local schools – in Miranda do Douro, Mogadouro, Freixo de Espada à Cinta and Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo, have been organised. The sessions cover students from the 3rd to the 11th grades.
The youngest students (3rd and 5th grades) are presented with the sounds and images of the birds, including real-size models. The older kids (8th to 11th grades) are given a game of questions that needs to be solved in teams.
The work will continue this spring, with plenty of field trips planned. Students will also prepare various works to be presented in exhibitions, open to the school and the wider community.
In Spain, parallel activities have also started last month, promoted by the by FPNCyL, in some local schools.
