DSL_300_176_enDid you know that the St. Lawrence River is home to prehistoric fish, that you can run into the world’s biggest animal here and that, not very long ago, navigating the River was impossible in winter?

 If you’re interested in learning more about the River’s treasures, join Kalikasan, GAME FOR SCIENCE’s virtual explorer, on theSt. Lawrence Scavenger Hunt website! Ten fun thematic routes enable you and your family to explore magnificent panoramic photos taken along the River and in its waters. The goal: to find the many treasures hidden there. GAME FOR SCIENCE players are even allowed to exhibit the treasures they have gathered in their own virtual museum!

 There’s a good chance that this virtual scavenger hunt will make you want to head out to explore the shores of this majestic River and visit the exciting museums that showcase its treasures. Simply download My exploration notebook – St. Lawrence River. This interactive tool, available on iPad, will enable you to identify the marine mammals you encounter and jot down your own observations.

 St. Lawrence Scavenger Hunt is also an original, comprehensive teaching tool. Teachers can download the lesson plans (Elementary Cycle Two and Three, Secondary Cycle One) to find great opportunities for discussing subjects related to Geography, History, Science and Technology.

 Are you ready?

The St. Lawrence Scavenger Hunt website was designed by CREO under the initiative of the Musée maritime de Charlevoix (maritime museum), thanks to financial support from the Virtual Museum of Canada and the collaboration of many partners including Aquatarium, Montréal Biodôme, Homarus Éco-Centre, Exploramer, GREMM, Musée de la Gaspésie, Musée de la MerMusée du Fjord, Refuge faunique Marguerite-d’Youville,Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père and Parks Canada.

By wandering through the magnificent landscapes of this natural park located in Quebec, you’ll be able to collect many objects that will enrich your virtual museum! Through your discoveries, you will learn how to protect the common eiders, the terns and the moss campion that populate the island. In addition, you will gain precious knowledge about ecosystems and about the appropriate behaviours to preserve them.
