An activity for Rusovce elementary schoolchildren: Creation of the booklets about the park. Children divided into groups have created the brochure about the park during one month, using three technologies: text, photography and painting. Brochures are divided into parts about the past, present time and the future. The best booklets were awarded and the best one will be published as a publication.
Through their own work, by an attractive manner, we tried to motivate pupils to a better understanding of the place they are living in, to localpatriotism and knowledge of history, to creative thinking and to participation in something what is directly related to Rusovce. At the same time, we tried to attract also their parents’ attention to the park renewal.
