Monarch Butterflies

We’ve started our study of Monarch Butterflies again this year and have already talked about the mystery of their yearly journey to Mexico, their life cycle, and a song about them.  We’ve also created our symbolic monarchs to mail to Mexico for the overwintering period of our year.  The children each colored a life sized monarch:

P.S. If you haven’t checked out the website Journey North, you need to!  You can study the migration/hibernation of all kinds of plants and animals with your students.  It’s free and has everything you need!
