Huellas, rastros y señales en Castilla y León

20/01/15
The Museo de la Ciencia in Valladolid has a new exhibition: Huellas, rastros y señales de la fauna salvaje de Castilla y León. Visitors will learn all about a part of the language used by nature to communicate with human beings.

Wildlife leave tracks and traces in nature that can give us lots of important information about the animals: they can tell us where and how an animal lives, what it eats, how it moves, about its habits and how it protects itself.

The exhibition aims to present and decode the traces that animals leave when interacting with their environments. Visitors will learn about mammals and how to obtain information from tracks, excrements, food waste, skins, skeleton, skulls and more. There will also be exhibits dedicated to birds, such as abandoned nests, replica eggs and wings, and colourful feathers. And finally, there will be a chance to make tracks in a sand bank and play a game using the sense of touch.

Huellas, rastros y señales de la fauna salvaje de Castilla y León will be open to the public until 21 June 2015. You can find more information here on the museum’s web page.

World Maritime Day

29/08/19
Use this video from the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) website to introduce your learners to World Maritime Day on 26 September 2019.  The theme this year is empowering women in the maritime community as it has generally been a male-dominated industry until now.  What types of job or profession can your learners identify in the video?  What training and qualifications would they need to work in this sector?  Why do they think it’s better to have both men and women working together in the workplace? (Image taken from the imo.org website)

Funeral for an Icelandic glacier

29/08/19
Watch this video with your learners about a funeral for the death of a 700-year-old glacier in Okjokull, Iceland, due to climate change. Okjokull is Iceland’s first glacier to be the victim of climate change and scientists warn that some 400 others on the island are also at risk. The mourners unveiled a bronze plaque with the inscription "A letter to the future," which they hope will raise awareness about the effects of climate change. What positive steps do your learners know about that we can take to help soften the effects of climate change? (Image taken from the Crux video on the youtube.com website)
