The Monarch's Arrival and Mexican Traditions


The first monarchs arrive at their winter home in Mexico each fall by the first of November. People connect the arrival of the monarchs with two events that take place in Mexico at the time; the corn harvest is a seasonal event and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a cultural event.

Essential Question:
How are Mexico's traditions connected to the arrival of monarchs?
