Thanks to Ms. Lois, we have been learning a lot about the life cycle and migratory patterns of the monarch butterfly. We grew milkweed in our garden, which the monarch caterpillars feed on. We watched as the caterpillars formed their chrysalises and then waited patiently for the butterflies to emerge. We tagged several butterflies and then released them so that they can be tracked on their journey south to Mexico. Our students are excited about participating as 'citizen scientists' in the ongoing data collection program. For more information visit the University of Kansas Monarch Watch website.
