The Arctic is a unique ecosystem that hosts a surprising amount of biodiversity. Students will have the opportunity to explore our Arctic gallery in detail with the guidance of experienced educators. They will experience the Arctic by meeting our animals, investigating numerous artifacts, and exploring a variety of activities to find out more about who and what lives in Canada's Arctic.
This program will help students to understand how such an unexpected variety of life is able to persist in the harsh Arctic habitat by highlighting important adaptations and connections which enable organisms to survive there. Your class will also investigate key issues that affect Arctic biodiversity with special emphasis on climate as a critical feature of the Arctic environment, for both the animals and the people who live there.
