For Teachers Interested in Incorporating More Hands-On Outdoor Learning into their Curriculum: PLT WorkshopMay 12, 2014
One of Ohio’s favorite pollinating butterflies, our orange and black Monarch, may disappear due to rapid loss of habitat. You can help save Monarchs! Children, parents and teachers can create their habitat in school or home gardens with beautiful flowers. In return, you can watch the amazing change from caterpillars to butterflies up close and personal.
Experts believe that 2014 may be the last Monarch Butterfly Migration, meaning the Monarch would disappear from Ohio. Parents and educators can engage children to help save the Monarch butterflies by planting native plants in their home and school gardens. It’s fun and educational to create a Monarch Habitat because everyone (all ages) will enjoy the fascination of watching Monarch caterpillars grow and then turn into beautiful butterflies! So, how do you do make a Monarch habitat?…
(Note: If you are an Ohio educator interested in doing this at school, you can create a Wild School Site by applying for grant money by May 31 from the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources here or apply for a grant to Green Your Schoolyard available from Project Learning Tree here.)
