Educational kits on the biodiversity of the Terra-Cotta Natural Park

The City of Pointe-Claire is pleased to offer residents, teachers and day camp leaders educational kits specially designed for young people. Available at the Central Library, these kits offer tools for discovering the rich biodiversity of the Terra-Cotta Natural Park.

The themes presented are aimed at different age groups: preschool (3 to 5 years), primary and secondary. Thanks to these educational beds, participants carry out a guided scientific process during which they formulate a hypothesis, make observations and discuss their discoveries. The kits also offer suggestions for incorporating and applying what participants have learned.
