The film starts with a short, simple overview of the importance of viticulture in Germany and Austria and the most famous wine regions in both countries. Then it goes on to discuss the most important conditions (soil, solar radiation) and forms of cultivation (terraces and vineyards on the plains) as well as the most widely spread types of grapes in Germany and Austria. In the main part of the film, pupils of a primary school accompany a wine-grower throughout the working year, watching him at work in the vineyard: form of the vine, work in winter (pruning, fruitbearing vines, substitute vines) turning cut-off vines into chaff, additional jobs (hammering in sticks, tightening wires, fastening fruit-bearing vines), removal of the earth from the grafting spots, pest control, cultivation of green manure crops, removal of surplus shoots, blossoming, weed removal, fighting nematodes (threadworms) biologically by cultivating daikon radish and, finally, harvesting. Apart from the manual harvest – where young and old people join in – also the use of harvesters is described.

Autumn is a transitional period in which the days grow shorter and temperatures get colder. There are lots of different fruits which serve as food for the animals on trees and bushes in the forest and the park. It is the season when people harvest fruits and vegetables in their gardens. In the film, we are shown how nature changes in autumn. The pupils learn why the leaves turn orange and yellow and eventually fall off the trees. In a way that is easy to understand they are told how plants and animals prepare for the coming winter. Various animals are introduced that are storing up winter supplies and looking for a place for hibernating. In addition, the film shows how the harvested fruit can be used for cooking or crafting. The most important festivals – the harvest festival, Halloween and Saint Martin’s festival – are explained. Besides didactic and methodical considerations, also a wealth of most varied suggestions is available in the accompanying material indicating how to work on this topic in a multifaceted and holistic way and how to rediscover it.

Dinosaurs lived on our Earth about 160 million years ago. There are several theories as to why they became extinct about 65 million years ago but the fascination with these creatures is still there. We can look at dinosaurs in dinosaur parks. People have reconstructed dinosaurs based on their ideas of what they might have looked like. In an age appropriate way the following questions are addressed in the film: When did dinosaurs live? What did the Earth look like at the time of the dinosaurs? How did dinosaurs live? Were dinosaurs clever? How do we know about dinosaurs? Where did the dinosaurs get their funny names from? Why did the dinosaurs become extinct? A special highlight is the chapter “Dinos Present Themselves“. A selection of dinosaurs, speaking in different voices, convey information on the various species to the children. Together with the extensive accompanying material the DVD is ideally suited for project work in the elementary sector.

Research Made Easy

There are people who much enjoy finding out things that nobody has found an answer to yet. These people are called scientists. They work to ensure that we humans are able to understand our world better. They discover lots of things that nobody knew before. Or they discover something that occurred so long ago that there is nobody who can remember it any more.

Butterflies fascinate adults just as much as children. The colourful insects are beautiful to look at and herald the summer. We get to know the characteristics of their structure as well as similarities and differences of the various butterflies. Spectacular footage of the Hummingbird Hawk-moth show the development of a butterfly from egg deposition to caterpillar stage to pupation and hatching. During the development from egg to butterfly lots of enemies are lurking. We see various defensive measures and protection mechanisms of caterpillars and butterflies. We watch how the cheeky Death’s-head Hawk-moth walks straight into a beehive and sucks the honeycombs empty. With pictures that they can hardly discover themselves in wild nature the children are offered fascinating insights into the world of butterflies. The accompanying material provides a wealth of ideas for practical implementation in the elementary sector, such as handicraft suggestions, working with natural materials, recipes, suggestions for dances and performances as well as pictures for colouring, song texts and much more. Thus this DVD is a medium that should not be missing in any educational institution.

Many families have got gardens adjacent to their houses and they are a must in kindergarten, too. When children are in nature and move around, they discover their environment with all their senses. In every meadow, scuttling, crawling, buzzing and bumbling creatures can be found.

Alpine Animals

The Alps are the highest German mountain range and the highest mountain range in Europe. They are an important habitat for plants and animals. We learn that mountains do not look the same from the valley to the peak but that plants and animals adapt to different altitudes.

Fascinating Bird World

Millions of different bird species live on earth. A blackbird, a flamingo, an eagle, a kiwi and a penguin look very different. By adapting to their specific habitats and eating habits their bodies have changed.

Life in the Lake

All of you certainly know a lake. Perhaps you have even been splashing around in a lake once because lakes are big stretches of water. But what actually is a lake? How did it form? What lives in a lake and around it? That is what we want to find out together. How do you actually recognise that you are at a lake? If you look closely, you see, simply put, that lakes are always where water collects in a very big depression on the earth’s surface. Contrary to rivers, lakes are therefore bodies of water that are surrounded on all sides by a shore.

Catholic and Protestant Baptism

As an important ritual of the Christian faith, baptism is closely connected with the traditional stories of the prophet John the Baptist, who is said to have lived in Jesus’ lifetime. John baptised people in the River Jordan, located at the present-day border between Israel and Jordan in the Middle East. Baptism and water were symbols of people’s confession of past sins and return to the right track in life. One day, Jesus and some of his disciples are said to have come to John to have themselves baptised.
