Winter Monarch Butterfly Journal

Our Theme: Surviving the Winter in Mexico
When Journey North begins in February, the monarchs are at the over-wintering sites in Mexico. For the first 6 weeks of the live program, our theme is survival. This journal is designed to be used before the spring migration begins in March. Through Monarch News Updates, students explore the habitat and climate of the monarch's winter home. They also learn about the adaptations monarchs have that help them to survive. Page by page, the journal is a workplace where students explore ever-changing events, record compelling questions, formulate hypotheses, document discoveries, and chronicle each step of their learning journey.
