The First Session of the Children's Environmental Hobby Group in Ecodolie Belkino Residential Complex!

On May 12, 2013 Ecodolie Belkino residential complex saw the first session of the Children's Environmental Hobby Group – a unique project for Obninsk, where children aged 6 to 13 would review major issues of ecology and respect for the environment.

What is ecology? In what ecosystem do we live? What role do animals and plants play in human life? Why is it important to respect the nature and how can we do it correctly? Ekaterina Romashkina, student of the Department of Ecology of Obninsk Nuclear Energy Institute, will tell children about it with the support of Ecoservice settlement’s operator.

The first meeting of young environmental advocates was devoted to introduction of space and the Solar System. Under the hobby group head’s supervision the children studied the sequence of planets in the Solar System, solved riddles about them and listened to interesting poems.

It was impossible to do without creativity – young naturalists were enthusiastic about painting of drawn planets and molding the Solar System models from plasticine. The first session of the Children's Environmental Hobby Group ended with cheerful outdoor activities!

The Children's Environmental Hobby Group in Ecodolie Belkino settlement will work all summer long, including weekends. And as the experience has already shown entertaining sessions with applications, molding, drawing and theatrical performances are interesting to every child!
