"Teaching and Learning with Monarch Butterflies"

2011 Summer Regina Workshop

July 19 & 20, 2011

8:45 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Regina Public School Office

"Teaching and Learning with Monarch Butterflies"

The powerful story of the Monarch Butterfly's 4000 km journey from Canada to Mexico each fall inspired the emergence of the Monarch Teacher Network (MTN). MTN is a growing network of Canadian, American and Mexican educators who are trained to bring the story of the Monarch Butterfly into their classrooms and communities. Monarchs can become a symbol to connect learning about the past, present and future of North America, its people and the land that sustains us all.

Taught by experienced volunteer educators, this intensive multi-day workshop combines hands-on activities, lectures, videos and group projects designed to inspire and teach participants ways to use Monarch Butterflies as a tool to make connections to all curricula.

Cost $95 per participant
