    Yes, the monarch study is a favorite of my second graders, too. It has
    cross-curricular objectives. We watch real butterflies as they get
    ready to go south. We research the factors involved in declining
    habitats for monarchs. They make symbolic butterflies to send to
    Mexico for the winter and the letter writing connected with that is a
    great real reason to write a friendly letter, fulfilling part of our
    language requirements as well. They love getting the letter from the
    Mexican school that tells them where their symbolic butterfly is
    wintering. Then they eagerly await both the real and symbolic
    butterflies arrival back to our area. We then send letters to the
    people who made the butterflies we end up with. We've, over the years
    I've been doing this, have gotten butterflies from 45 states.

      The other program we've fully participated in was the tulip study.
    This one is a great across the curricular study, also. I've only
    dabbled in other areas, but hope to add more this fall.

    Have to go, have fun experimenting with the programs that appeal to you!
    Maria
