Our first-graders had a lesson from World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Ukraine.
CISC students learned about plants and animals that can be met in different climatic zones – what they feed on, in which forests they may dwell, what colours they have and under which conditions the colouration may change, and what are their peculiarities. We are grateful to Elyzaveta Rykova for the interesting lesson and comprehensive answers to 1000+ questions asked by our curious CISC students!
