Ecosystem, water and renewable energy

From CE2 to CM2

Through three main themes, students will be able to engage in activities to discover specific environments; particular ecosystems by identifying the interactions of living beings with each other and with their environment.

Through experiments and observations, they can also discover different resources, such as water, and link them to their specific use in a mountain environment (hydroelectricity, for example).
