  • Landscape yesterday and today, changes of landscape and its formation with a help of historic- geographic methods (historical maps, forming of land registers, medieval settlement remains, cultural relics in region) – genius loci. Effect of natural conditions on life and work of people in visited region (SWOT analysis of natural conditions and its effect on visited area). Heritage for contemporary generation, thematic mapping, inspiration from natural materials, distance measurement, object size measurement, recreation and tourist trade – geocaching. What lives and grows in water and on meadows? Data gathering from fieldwork research, map recording, taking of water and soil samples and analysis, relationship of localities and their contribution to environment. What lives and grows in forest? Participation of people in managing forest. Are we able to imagine with a help of maps and names of villages or towns the recent forest stands? Locality records on maps, arboretum – Timber Species Library – Textbook in Nature. Movement as a teaching form in fieldwork also contributes to a healthy life style. The main aim of the fieldwork is not only a collecting of quantitative data but the important is also the ability of perception of a particular place from its qualitative site.
