Bees became professional scientists these days. One windy day they went for the walk outside with the main aim to find water in the closest area. While walk they have found a river, because teacher could not see it very well – they pointed to the sign with its name – Bytomka. “Oh, our teachers know nothing” – Maks stated… 😉
Indeed, we have a small river nearby! Its` name, Bytomka, has the beginning in Bytom, neighbour city, as well as its source. Tens of years ago Bytomka was very polluted, because of industry – coal mines, iron and steel works, metalworks etc. From past twenty years people tried to improve its quality, and it is much better now.
Nowadyas we can see animals close to the river, but no fish. Even these days some people throw rubbish into the river or close to the river bank! Bees were searching both for animals and rubbish…
Children wanted to touch the water of Bytomka, but it was too dangerous to come too close. Teacher Ania took some water into the bucket. Then, children discussed its quality and cleanness. They put water into the bottle for future experiments.
Then – Bees continued their walk by the river. They noticed a sign saying that ‘Throwing rubbish is not allowed”, a bridge to go back, a swan (swimming on the grass instead of water) and fire plug!
