Course: Children experience nature

Learning area nature

Admission requirements


Semester: 2



The core task of general studies is to support pupils in experiencing themselves as part of nature, in exploring the world, and in opening up the immediate and indirect environment in the sense of global responsibility and education for sustainable development (ESD). In this course, subject-specific scientific and didactic fundamentals of the reference discipline biology are taught in order to enable students to jointly develop and discuss basic questions of the human-nature relationship with pupils.

  • The human body (function and interaction of body parts, organs and senses, metabolism, sexuality)
  • Health (physical and mental health promotion and maintenance; behaviour in the case of illness and accidents, first aid)
  • Animals and plants (evolution; biodiversity, recognising, naming, and classifying native and non-native animal and plant species; parts and structure; reproduction, growth, development, usability)
  • Environmental literacy, environmental education, and environmental protection (ESD); interrelationships between plants, animals, and the environment
  • Simple biological and subject didactic models for cooperative forms of learning and self-directed learning (observing and determining, experimenting, and researching); demonstration experiments, project lessons, learning scenarios with a focus on the human–nature relationship
  • Linguistic and methodological didactic means for the implementation of content-integrative science lessons and English lessons at the primary level
