Teaching and Learning with Monarch Butterflies


Teaching & Learning with Monarch Butterflies is a two-day, fully immersive workshop focused on giving educators the knowledge and skills to teach multi-disciplinary lessons that will strike awe and wonder in students of all ages! This workshop will focus specifically on the early childhood educator!

Educators learn about the Monarch's life cycle, migration, and habitat requirements by participating in experiential activities, including indoor simulations, outdoor wide games, and a variety of visual and performing arts. Political and ethical considerations related to species conservation, as well as social justice issues in Mexico, are also explored.

Through our proven teachers-teaching-teachers method, participants build confidence and competence working with Monarchs, including:

  • Appropriate handling techniques 
  • Care and feeding throughout all life stages 
  • Tagging and tracking of migrating Monarchs

Participants will leave the workshop with the knowledge, skills, and tools to bring the magical story of this iconic creature to life for their students.
