Symbolic Migration by Mrs. Blackburn

Our sixth grade classes are participating in the 18th annual Symbolic Monarch Butterfly Migration across North America. Over 60,000 students in the U.S. and Canada create symbolic butterflies and send them to Mexico for the winter. Children in Mexico who live beside the monarch's winter sanctuaries protect the butterflies and send them north in the spring. Through the Symbolic Migration, children across North America are united by the monarch butterfly and celebrate its spectacular migration. They learn authentic lessons of ambassadorship, conservation and international cooperation. Can you find us on Journey North's Symbolic Migration Map?

We took photos of our symbolic monarchs before dropping them in the mail.
