JUNO QUIZ: The new tool for visiting school groups from 7-11 years old
The Juno Beach Centre is pleased to present its new quizzes! With this new tool to orient them through the youth circuit of the permanent exhibits, young visitors aged 7 to 11 years will discover a museum adapted to their level with historical content to which they can relate. They will also benefit from a better navigation through the major themes, including discovery-drawers designed especially for them. The quiz takes into consideration the advice of teachers and has been tested on students. It is also based on school curriculum and adapted to the exhibitions, thus allowing children to get the best out of their visit to the Juno Beach Centre.
To prepare your visit, here are 2 options:
1. Download and print the pages of the Juno Quiz for your students.
Caution: The 2 versions of the Quiz contain the same questions but in different order. This will spread your group throughout the museum during their visit.

JUNO QUIZ: The new tool for visiting school groups from 11 years +
The new Juno Quiz has been created so that students may put into practice various secondary-level skills and objectives during their visit. Focusing on key moments of the Second World War, the quiz enables students to take account of the significance and magnitude of the events. It orients them to information in the exhibit that is especially directed to students and themes that are accessible to them. The quiz also touches on contemporary Canada to awaken the curiosity of students who are not familiar with the country and to engage Canadian students in reflection on how the Second World War has impacted the Canada they know today. The quiz is also available in French, an ideal way to make the visit a French Immersion experience.
