Truth be told, the weather today has been abysmal. Which is why we spent most of it in the Zoologisk Museet, which has, among other things, an excellent exhibition on evolution, and lots of hands-on exhibits. Also, because they’ve got school holidays in Denmark right now, there were lots of experts who presented their findings.
Our students had to draw the „arms“ of various creatures on exhibit to compare the development of the bones. Later, they held impromptu talks on various skulls, interpreting what the layout of the teeth, the position of the eyes, and other specifics of the skull told them about the habits of the animal. One of our students actually counted all the vertebrae of a python skeleton – which was 365, if I remember correctly.
Now everyone is very tired, but I am sure the walk through Christiania tomorrow morning will liven things up. After that, pupils get time to themselves to e.g. visit the amusement park Tivoli and to do a survey on the „liveability“ of Copenhagen. On Thursday, we will explore the bike lanes and the area north to Copenhagen, unless the weather lets us down again. It seems to be improving, though.
