Normandy Elementary brings
international monarch butterfly study to students
Education is best when it is relevant for
students, and Normandy Elementary School is using the annual migration of
monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico, and their Bay Village rest stop,
to make learning about geography and science personal.
Bay Village is located right along the monarch
butterflies' migration path, and students frequently see the
beautiful-winged insects each fall and spring as the sojourners rest and
replenish their nutrition during a journey that can reach 2,500 miles long.
Julie Holland, a Normandy Elementary school
is one of many people who watch for and record
monarch butterfly sightings during the migration. Read more about our study
