Module contents
In the first phase, students accompany environmental educators from the Green School or other extracurricular learning locations (Regionales Umweltbildungszentrum Oldenburg, Park der Gärten) and learn about various action concepts in a self-test. These concepts are then adapted to selected learning groups and tested among themselves (phase 2). In the third phase, students can stimulate the learning processes of the pupils by team teaching. In a final reflection, the experiences are collected and classified (phase 4).
