Learning from Monarchs, A Teachers’ Handbook
There are as many ways to use monarchs in the classroom as there are teachers interested in giving it a try. Monarchs offer a compelling introduction to insect life cycles, the balance of nature, and the intricacies of ecosystems and food webs. They can be the focus of a profound inquiry science project, complete with math and graphing skills, which can connect students with an international community of citizen scientists. They can also be an exciting journaling theme, a catalyst for understanding geography and human culture, a dynamic study in ethics and a wonderful subject for art and design.
Created by Ba Rea, an educator and monarch enthusiast for 40 years, to accompany her annual monarch teachers’ workshops, Learning From Monarchs is intended as a starting point for teachers interested in using monarchs in their classrooms. It introduces concepts and information that will be useful as you design your own monarch lessons.
