Join the Symbolic Migration
September 1, 2017 Mary Hosier
How can you be an ambassador for Monarch conservation? Join hundreds of students in Canada and the U.S. in creating paper Monarchs that carry messages of friendship and concern to students in Mexico.
By Estela Romero, Journey North correspondent in Mexico
"Soon the real Monarchs will be leaving their northern home and migrate to central México to spend the winter with us! We are so excited to receive the beautiful Symbolic Monarchs you are preparing to make and send. Please keep in mind a couple of important things as you make your paper butterflies..."
Prepare your students for their role as ambassadors.
Use Journal Questions to think and write about important topics during the symbolic migration.
After you send your paper butterfly on its journey, report to the Fall Migration map. Include your class photograph. Participating classrooms can connect through the map.
