About this Monarch Project:

The goals for this project were to increase awareness of extinction probabilities, help support the monarch butterfly population, and provide experiential learning opportunities in all curricular areas with an outdoor classroom. We achieved this by creating a place where our students can come to watch, learn, and discover the beauty found in nature. These experiences have instilled in them an environmental awareness and empower them to be environmentally conscious. During library lessons, Mrs. Mosier introduced the garden to the students and throughout the year continued with a variety of lessons in different subject areas that supported the students’ growth and understanding of Monarch habitats. Examples of these lessons are drawing diagrams of the garden with upper grades, life cycle of the monarch butterfly with the lower grades, releasing monarchs in the garden, Monarch butterfly tissue art, etc. Students have learned to maintain the sustainability of the garden; they have developed a sense of ownership and became empowered to be active members of their environment.
