For a different Think Tank tonight we headed to the Museum of Nature to check out their Arctic Voices exhibit for a Special Preview for Teachers and Educators.
Greeting from Gilles Proulx, Project Leader for nature School Programs
We had a greeting from Gilles who let us know about the current programs they have at the museum.
Roundtable Discussion Sessions: What are your needs?
Before I even got to the museum I was excited about this part. I love that the museum is asking teachers what we want. What a great idea for collaborating. Here are some questions they wanted answers to.
The Think Tank crew had tons of ideas to share. I think we all got excited about all the ideas and possibilities. If you have any ideas or answers to the questions above, please share them in the comments.
Visit to the Arctic Voices Exhibit
At the end of the night we got to visit the Arctic Voices Exhibit. Here are some pictures I took.
Real Penguin eggs was really neat to see.
I loved these posters at the beginning of the exhibit. They really make you think about the differences between us and Arctic people.
I double took these while I was at the exhibit but I loved that it says “Please Touch”!
I’m short next to a polar bear.
This was my favourite part of the exhibit by far. I loved being able to get so close to a polar bear. Absolutely amazing!
Super Cool side note: I found out that my husband’s Great Grandfather carved the letters on the front of the Museum of Nature. Pretty Cool!
