Keywords:the Naeba foot of a mountain Geopark, instructional activity

In the Naeba foot of a mountain Geopark, I push forward an instructional activity.
The sixth grader of Tsunan Elementary School learned by a class of the composite learning under the theme of a Geopark for one year.
They went to the museum and heard the lecture about the Geopark and observed the display.
And children went to the geo-site and observed it while hearing the commentary by the guide.
In summer vacation, children carried out a questionnaire to a townsman. There were many people who did not know the Geopark, but the result that the father recognition that was the place where nature and culture were rich had appeared. Children analyzed the result of the questionnaire and thought about activity in the future.
And many ideas were born. I made the production of a newspaper and the picture book, routes of the stamp rally, and, besides, I produced a song and the introduction animation, and announcement was performed in areas.
Many people were impressed, and the song which children made shed tears.
In addition, I introduce the actions such as the observation society of the stone of the riverbank, local brewing, a post office, the inn.
