April 9, 2014 - St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School students from Mme Aubin's Grade 4 class and Mme Therrien's Grade 5/6 class are embarking on an†inquiry based learning project. In order to build†knowledge, students were very fortunate to attend a special presentation by Science North Staff Scientist, Mr Bruce Doran on Thursday, April 3rd. Mr Doran shared his experiences and the knowledge he gained about the fate of elephants while working in Africa on the Imax film, "Born to Be Wild". After a question and answer session, students viewed the Imax film which features orphaned baby Elephants and information on The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. The presentation and movie sparked many ideas and questions from the students. A member of the Grade 5/6 class, Ivan Irazi, was able to share his experience of having visited The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust when he was a student in Africa! "Now students are working on developing authentic questions in order to deepen their understanding of why elephants are endangered," says Mme Therrien.
