Here are some Web sites to help you with your research.
Here is an activity to help you gather information from one of the Web sites:
Want to know how big a ship can be and still fit into the St. Lawrence Seaway? How long did it take to build the seaway? How much did it cost? How many tonnes of cargo are shipped through the seaway? Check out this Web site to find the answers to those questions, and more.
This site has lots of information on the mammals, fish, birds, and reptiles of Quebec, as well as this province's "species at risk"-those that are endangered or threatened. If you click on the "Quebec Natural History" link, you can also get more detailed information about the physical regions of Quebec (called "geologic regions" on this site), and its life zones.
1. Go to the Redpath Museum. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click
on the link Mammals . Read the information under the heading "What is a

2. Scroll down to the heading "Carnivores". When you see "Black bear" , click on
the camera. Scroll down the page to see where in Quebec Black bears live.
3. Click here to download a map of Quebec. Use a coloured pencil to show the

4. Now go back to the "Carnivores" list and scroll down until you see the word
"Lynx". Click on the camera, and then scroll down the page to see where in
Quebec lynxes live.
5. Using a different coloured pencil, mark on your map the areas of Quebec where
the lynx lives.
6. Using the map on page 3 of InfoCanada Quebec book, label Quebec City,
Montreal, Oka Provincial Park, the St. Lawrence River, and James Bay.
7. Give your map a title, and include a legend.
8. In a paragraph, summarize what you learned about where Black bears and
lynxes live in Quebec. Use cardinal directions to describe where the lynx lives in
relation to one of these places. Use cardinal directions to describe where black
bears live in relation to one of these places.
