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 isĀ 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.

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”!

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!
