Hi to all,
Hope the school year is going well.
Our class was participating in one of Marci McGowan's amazing Internet projects, Autumn Across America. We had been thinking about Autumn in Arlington, Massachusetts, our community, when something incredible happened!
One of my students counted over 280 monarch butterflies flying over our own Peirce School playground after school. In investigating their migration, I found a fabulous project through Journey North, entitled Symbolic Migration.
This beautiful butterfly is by Jamie and it's on its way to Mexico!! To see all the children's work go here: http://geocities.com/ljacoby_2000/monarchs.html and to view all our work for the project, see: http://geocities.com/ljacoby_2000/aaa.html. You'll find links to information on Symbolic Migration on this page, as well.
