LAW PROTECTED PLANTS OF NATIONAL NATURE RESERVE DREVENÍK (HORNÁD BASIN) IN PROJECT LEARNING
The National nature reserve in Dreveník has an area of 101.82 ha with the highest degree of plant protection. Travertine formation is located at an altitude of 609 m a.s.l. in the eastern part of Hornád basin in East Slovakia. In the Dreveník area there are around 270,470 species and subspecies of vascular plants. Approximately 60 species are classified as endangered species of Slovakia and are classified as mountain, lowland, forest and steppe species. The plants are of phytogeographical significance, some reaching their northern limit of range in this area. Protected species of the area include (Pulsatilla slavica G. Reuss.), Alpine aster (Aster alpinus L.), Carpathian harebell (Campanula carpatica Jacq.), Pontic dragonhead (Dracocephalum austriacum L.), Hungarian iris (Iris aphylla subsp. hungarica), European columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris L.), Snowdrop windflower (Anemone sylvestris L.), Manchurian monks-hood (Aconitum variegatum L.), Turks cap lily (Lilium martagon L.), St. Lucie cherry (Cerasus mahaleb (L.) Mill.), Yellow Monkshood (Aconitum anthora L.), Bladdernut (Staphylea pinnata L.) and Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum Cass.). The aim of project learning is the interconnection between school theory and practice, and the upbringing towards independence and responsibility. The pupils in the second primary education stage developed these skills by elaborating a card file of plants and a phytogeographical map of the range of the protected species.
