Join MAG educators to learn about monarch butterfly biology and ecology, monarch citizen science projects (Journey North, Project Monarch Health, Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, and Monarch Watch tagging), and creating pollinator habitats. The Monarchs and More: An Inquiry and Arthropod-Based Curriculum is the basis for the monarch butterfly studies and schoolyard ecology explorations included in the workshop.
Curricula are divided into grade-level specific lessons for K-2, 3-6, and middle school teachers, with a strong interdisciplinary approach incorporating concepts and skills in science, math, reading, writing, art, and social studies. Lessons are congruent with K-8 concept and process standards as outlined in the National Academy of Science’s National Science Education Standards (1996) and correlated to the Georgia Performance Standards.
