The school project on Leka
The school project on Leka is a teaching program for primary and lower secondary schools based on Leka’s unique geology. Through field work at se- lected sites, the pupils have learned about how the geology and landscape are created and formed as well as how people have settled down within this landscape.
The teaching program consists of two distinct concepts: 1. A journey to the Earth’s interior, and; 2. If rocks could talk. The pupils have learned, experienced, observed, researched and experimented. The activities encompass hiking, easy climbing and biking to sites offering easily observable geological structures. The project is in collaboration with Nord-Trøndelag University Col- lege (HINT), Leka School, Leka Experiences and Trollfjell Geopark. HINT is also conducting norma- tive process research on the teaching.
