The Treasures of Nature and Culture

This set of tasks and activities was prepared by Magda Zawadzka and Małgorzata Zdybiewska from TTC in Radom

We tend to forget that our heritage is not only built of stone and brick or created by the strokes of a painter’s brush. Parks and gardens designed by our ancestors a long time ago are silent witnesses to history and a living proof of the vision and creativity of those who lived before us. Is it not a reason good enough to protect and cherish natural heritage?

Circle the three most important items which you associate with the word ‘heritage’.

  • museums
  • traditions
  • family history

  • traditional crafts

  • paintings
  • sculptures
  • gardens
