“Discovering cave bears and a walk on a nature trail”
The day begins with a visit to the Museum Ladin Ursus ladinicus in San Ćiascian from 10.30 am to 12 noon. Visitors to the museum can learn about the geology of the Dolomites and the Ursus ladinicus bear of Conturines, which lived in the mountains around 40,000 years ago. In a simple and intuitive process, students can find out about the physical features, genetic characteristics and behaviour of this species of bear and the climatic conditions in which it lived. The most exciting part of the visit is when a cave bear is compared to a fine stuffed brown bear. After a break for lunch, there will be a walk along a nature trail from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. The undemanding path is flat and it goes through woods and meadows. It is an ideal place for people of all ages to learn to love nature.
“Have fun with a Treasure Hunt at the Museum Ladin Ćiastel de Tor and visit the Mill Valley”
The morning session begins at 10.30 am at the Museum Ladin Ćiastel de Tor, which preserves and presents the history, language, culture, legends, archaeology, geology and craftsmanship of the Ladin people. An educational “Museum Ladin Treasure Hunt” will take place to promote learning and the involvement of the students. The participants will be divided into teams and visit the permanent exhibition, where they will have to look at some of the objects on display carefully. Subsequently, they will have to remember where some of these “treasures” are and locate them on the plan of the museum. The activity will teach the students to use their memory skills, work together and observe the items in the museum more carefully. In the afternoon, after a break for lunch, the museum will organize a trip to the Mill Valley, an enchanting setting steeped in the atmosphere of yesteryear. Eight perfectly restored mills can be admired in the picturesque valley, where the distinctive nature and culture of the Dolomites are closely bound together.
“Discover the geology of the Dolomites and visit the Mill Valley”
The Museum Ladin can provide visitors with a marvellous overview of the magnificent landscape of the Dolomites. During the morning session, there will be an in-depth look at the unique geology of the mountains. As always, there will be interactive and practical activities to arouse the curiosity of students. They will put their highly imaginative minds to good use during scientific experiments and direct observation of fossils from millions of years ago that will leave them astonished. The educational programme will be rounded off in the afternoon with a visit to the Mill Valley.
