Grade 6 students will utilize newly installed Smartboard technology in the classroom to conduct a videoconference with a Bluecoat from Science North. The program Science North is presenting is Predators and their Prey. It is a program suitable for grades 4 to 6 but has specific curriculum links in grades 4 and 6. The videoconference will be approximately 50 minutes in duration. The program includes a Science North science kit containing animal skulls, skeletons, tracks, etc.
