Have you wanted to show your students more information on butterflies? The Live Monarch Foundation has a program that will give you materials to share the wonder of these insects and their amazing yearly journey.
The Live Monarch Foundation (501c3) Educator Outreach Program is providing funding for teachers throughout the United States to enroll into the National Campaign: to bring Monarch Butterflies into the classroom. This program provides education and materials to strengthen the Monarch’s 3,000 mile migratory route within North America by creating self sustaining butterfly gardens and refuges...your participation is critical.
This program will give you, your students and their parents an exciting, personal, educational and hands on experience. Materials will be provided for each participant to raise a virtual butterfly and start a real butterfly garden with professional instruction on each level of its maintenance and care, with insight into the shared responsibility of each person to protect our fragile environment one backyard at a time.
Each participant will receive all the tools necessary to make a visible difference in their community and the support necessary to keep the benefits growing. Recognition for personal results, group efforts, and community involvement are all part of the structured program, as is access to proven Free fundraising programs, materials, curriculum and discounted supplies if desired. You control the integration with your teaching objectives and personal goals.
If you would like to participate, or you know of an educator who would enjoy participating, please go to www.LMF-Educator-Award.com/index.html .
All registrants will receive updates and their monthly newsletter. Register today to hold your spot and start whenever your schedule permits.
Editor's Note: This looks as though it's going to be a wonderful program. We're signed up to participate as well, and we'll hopefully get to share our experiences with classrooms that are participating.
