Within the “Voievodul Mircea” High School in Targoviste, a group of three teachers, including Mrs. Eftimie Cristina Mihaela, worked together to implement a structured scenario – Rewilding. A total of 35 students aged 14-16 years participated in the activities. Although the activities took place during the pandemic, due to the specificity of the school, which finished the school year later, there was an opportunity to carry out face-to-face activities. The pupils produced various products as a result of this project, such as posters, posters promoting certain animal species, a banner and a calendar for the year 2022 with the species canis lupus.

CARE: It was difficult at first to get them interested, but with patience, slowly, things started to come together. Of course, there was also competition between teams, who could make the most successful plea for the introduction of a species, who made the best campaign, etc. 

KNOW: The most important relationships that are established between living things in a biocenosis are feeding relationships, also called trophic relationships. Students were able to highlight food chains in different possible scenarios depending on the species proposed for rewilding. Applications such as this were very well folded into the respective biology and ecology curricula. 

DO: The students worked in teams and tried to document and analyse evidence provided by researchers to support different claims. The results were presented in an activity attended by three experts from the Valahia University of Targoviste. 

Open Schooling findings: The open educational resources were a support for teachers as they followed the competences of the curriculum in several subjects: biology, ecology, biodiversity conservation. Most of the activities carried out used open educational resources because they were easy to use, we had free access and they were in an accessible format. 

Students’ results: The students have produced various products as a result of this project, such as posters, posters for the promotion of animal species, a poster and a calendar for the year 2022 with the species canis lupus. They worked in teams and tried to document and analyse evidence provided by researchers to support different claims.
