Symbolic Migration (https://journeynorth.org/symbolic-migration)
The Third Graders are participating in the Symbolic Migration of Monarch Butterflies. Each class participating creates individual butterflies with their first name, school, and teacher’s email. The individual butterflies are placed in a larger butterfly folder with a group picture and a letter to children in Mexico. All the butterfly packets are sent to schools in the area near the Monarchs’ winter sanctuaries. In March when the monarch butterflies migrate north, the paper butterflies are also sent north. Students don’t receive their own butterflies, but butterflies made by other students in the United States and Canada.
