Description

In this video, museum educators Katie Derloshon, Lara Noren, and Meaghan Cuddy walk your family through science skill-building activities and ways to explore the natural world and collections.

Come and discover how animals have adapted to live in the cold Arctic climate! Our museum’s ocean educators will help us learn about the narwhal, an animal uniquely adapted to live in the Arctic. Together we will practice making observations and asking questions to better understand how adaptations help this animal survive.
