They talked about the importance of forest for man, learned about the peculiarities of different kinds of trees growing in the forest massive, tried to use “Sholokhov’s Sword” for planting. The second part of the class was named “All Relatives are not Worth a Horse”, it took place at the Stables of the Museum-Reserve. The children learned about the tradition of careful and respectful attitude to the horse, about the rules of taking care of horses, looked around the Stables and tried to ride on horseback. The children were pleased to feed the horses with carrots.
