Lantern Moon: Biology in primary school with ant researcher Bert Hölldobler


Bert Hölldobler is a world-famous ant researcher who found out how ants communicate by means of scent. In ‘Lantern Moon and Hot Ears’ he shows how primary school students can become ant reseachers themselves in a playful way.

The teaching brochure ‘Lantern Moon and Hot Ears’ was created by an international working group following the Science on Stage festival 2011 in Copenhagen. The new edition with simplified texts contains templates which can be copied to promote language skills with natural sciences. Scientists explain in them, how they came to their chosen profession and the sometimes odd stories that

happened to them along the way. The collection contains assignments to promote language skills for students with various experiments. Primary school teachers working with these assignments do not need to have specialized scientific knowledge. The brochure can be downloaded here.
