The butterflies returned!
As part of their study of migration
, our first and second grade classes participated in Symbolic Migration
, an initiative that had classrooms close to the Monarch butterflies' northern habitats sending class photos and symbolic paper butterflies to classes in Mexico. Now, in the spring, a return mailing of butterflies arrived, containing paper butterflies made by other classes in the U.S.
The children were also thrilled to receive a letter from a class in Mexico to "the dear friends in the north."
They also received a beautiful greeting from another participating school in Marlborough, CT, and are happy to have made these connections through migration.
