Keywords:   education, study activity, medicinal plants, therapeutical effects
Abstract:
In this work we focused on the therapeutic effects and use of selected species of medicinal plants as one of the ways to bring acquired knowledge in extra-curricular activities to primary school pupils. The theoretical part of the study dealt with the classification of selected plant species - common selfheal (Prunella vulgaris L.), spring pheasant’s eye (Adonis vernalis L.), great yellow gentian (Gentiana lutea L.), jointfir (Ephedra distachya L.), oregano (Origanum vulgare L.), spring primrose (Primula veris L.), German chamomile (Matricaria recutita L.), sage (Salvia officinalis L.) and Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.) Maxim.). A practical questionnaire was used on 70 high school students, and 25 university students, to obtain and evaluate data that related to the basic knowledge and awareness of medicinal plants, and the development of study circles as an extra-curricular activity to provide information on medicinal herbs and their healing effects.
