What type of environment would you need to keep Monarch butterflies safe and healthy while they are in your care?
Students will work together as researchers, scientists, and dieticians to help the Director of the Bronx Zoo develop a safe environment for Monarch butterflies. Students will learn the anatomy of the Monarch and Viceroy butterflies, the life cycles and diets of butterflies. When they have completed their research, they will work together to design a garden for the zoo with a place for each cycle of a butterfly, and a paragraph on how they prepared for the shipment of Monarchs.
Whenever necessary I intend to provide the necessary elements to build the steps of my students' knowledge about computer usage, graphic designs, and the curriculum content.
