I just finished the 2 day training. It truly was a great experience. I already knew a lot about Monarchs since we have reared them for a few years at our school. However, there were a ton of new tips and ideas I gained.
It is hard to sum up just what was covered. However, I can at least share a few pictures of these beautiful creatures as we released them.
What better medium to teach life cycles, ecosystems, habitats, and a number of other concepts with?!
Stay tuned for fun ideas and lessons that I will be implementing this year.
If interested, here is the link to MTN's site: Monarch Teacher Network where you can gather great information on how to bring this to your own classrom.
Another fantastice website is: Journey North We use this site to track the Monarch's migration.
