RBCM@Home (Kids) with Ocean Networks Canada

What's For Dinner?

Build an Ocean Food Chain with Ocean Networks Canada

The ocean supports so many unique and wonderful creatures. Like all living things, these creatures need energy to survive. Explore where this energy comes from as we 'dive' into ocean food chains. Play a game all about producers, consumers and decomposers, and learn about an incredible marine food chain that breaks all of the rules!

This event takes place during Science Odyssey Week, a national campaign that celebrates Canadian achievements in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

Materials needed:

  • 2 paperclips
  • pencil
  • 2 pieces of paper
  • a circular object to trace onto the paper, approximately 18-20cm in diameter (a large bowl works well for this)

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is like a museum playdate online. Visit with members of the museum staff who are working from home, along with families from across BC, as we make and learn together. Each session will have some kind of making activity, so get your paper and pencil crayons ready. RBCM @ Home(Kids) takes place on Wednesdays at 11 am, visit our calendar for topics, presenters and a list of materials so you can join in with hands-on activities at home.

For adults and youth, check out RBCM @ Home. This program takes place on Tuesdays at 12pm and highlights members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home during the pandemic and discover how they do their work, how their work is reflected in their homes and what they're working on now.
