Matilda Komissarova, a representative of the Magadan State Nature Reserve, introduced the schoolchildren to the rare flora and fauna of the region.
The students were asked to consolidate the knowledge gained at the presentation, continuing the phrase: “I am proud! The Far East is… ». While the Anthem of the Far East was playing, the teams wrote answers to questions.
The answers pleased and at the same time surprised the jury – the teachers with whom the students came. The children replied that they were proud of the friendliness of the people, the hospitality, the beauty of nature, their relatives, “good people with a pure heart.” They wrote that the best city is Magadan, and the Far East is a “cool” region.
The team of the most active and curious received a book as a gift. The collections were also donated to regional and school libraries.
