Elementary schools in Quebec are invited to participate in the competition to name the 10 belugas adopted by some 40 municipalities in Quebec as part of the campaign. Adopt a beluga. A great opportunity to integrate ICT!

The objective of the competition is quite simply to make students aware of the protection of the beluga. Thus, to participate and find a name for the beluga in their area or in their municipality, the students will have to draw inspiration from the particular story of each of them, told in the family album which can be found on the website of the competition, notrebeluga.org.

First, the pupils will be able to familiarize themselves with the situation of the beluga thanks to a special file prepared by the magazine The Resourceful. Then, for each name proposed, the students will have to explain their choice. They can also submit a text, a drawing or an audio or video clip to express why it is important to save beluga whales. A guide for teachers, in which is the entry form, is proposed.

This is a great opportunity to integrate concepts of geography, natural sciences, languages and ICT! Start by researching information on the Web in the lab or in the classroom. Choose to accompany your class's suggestions with audio and / or video clips shot using the tools available at school or that your students can bring from home for the occasion. Complement their experience by making awareness posters for your school with an online application like Canva.com. Let them choose the tools with which they feel most comfortable and help each other: your experience will only be easier.

The competition is open to all students in French and English elementary schools in Quebec. The deadline to participate is March 20, 2015 and the names of the belugas adopted by the municipalities bordering the St.Lawrence will be unveiled on April 15.
