Bringing the museum to the school

By on January 27, 2016
The Osoyoos Museum brought a "mini-museum" to children at Osoyoos Elementary School last week. The topic was species at risk, and Kara Burton, executive director with the museum brought four fold-up boxes to the school based on this theme. These boxes were used last summer as part of a day camp run last summer by Osoyoos Museum and the Royal B.C. Museum. Pictured here is a display about the local and endangered bird, the yellow-breasted chat. From left at the table are Emma Palmateer, Burton, Gavin Eriksen, Derek Subotin, Drielle Doyon and Paige Hanson. The first three students are in Grade 4, while Doyon and Hansen are in Grade 5. The children engaged in interactive activities, such as trying to guess which of four eggs belonged to the yellow-breasted chat and which were laid in the nest by a "parasite bird," a brown-headed cowbird.
