  • Challenge Question #3

    "How does the pine forest serve as an umbrella and a blanket for the monarchs?"

    Hi Journey North,

    We are the First Grade Class at St. John the Baptist School in Milwaukie,
    Oregon. We think the top of the pine trees serve as an umbrella to protect
    the monarchs from the weather. We think the evergreen pine needles serve as
    a blanket to keep the monarchs warm.

    Your Friends,

    Mrs. Kennedy's First Grade Class
