Arctic Ambassadors

Workshop at the Museum

Recommended for
Ontario: grades 4 to 7
Quebec: elementary cycle 2

In this investigative workshop, students will discover the biodiversity of the Arctic by researching key aspects of specific animal species.

Looking for clues in our new Canada Goose Arctic Gallery, students will then compile a "fact sheet" about their animal ambassador with important information relating to its ecosystem.

After sharing their findings, students will appreciate the biodiversity of the Arctic and perhaps want to become a "human ambassador" for this fragile land!

Duration: 50 minutes
