'Teaching and  Learning with  Monarch Butterflies' is a two-day workshop combining classroom and field experiences.  It enables pre-K through 12th grade educators to teach essential skills in literacy, math, science, geography, technology, Spanish, the arts and social studies… through the captivating story of monarchs.  Workshop participants complete the workshop with all the materials they need to bring this exciting and dynamic story into their classrooms, homes and communities.

Workshops are taught by a team of experienced classroom teachers and educators. Participants are provided with the knowledge, skills, materials and confidence to raise monarchs in the classroom and create an outstanding learning experience for their students.
