In this engaging simulation, students become monarch butterflies and experience the challenges of the fall journey to Mexico. After discussing what migration is and why different species migrate, students follow a script that introduces different actions and scenarios they must navigate while 'making their way south' from one end of a green space or playing field to the other.
This easy-to-implement, outdoor lesson is one that younger learners are sure to enjoy. Whether part of larger study of migration or monarch butterflies this activity is an excellent fit for Science outcomes in grades 1, 2 and 4.
