Ware Academy students are spreading their global wings
The lower school students (grades 3-5) of Ware Academy have been undergoing a project that is bigger than their wings can spread. With the help of the Symbolic Migration project, students in the third, fourth and fifth grades in Mexico and North America will learn more about Monarch butterflies and one another.
Cultures across the globe share the love of the beautiful wings of the butterfly, and the science lesson about migration that is best taught focuses on the Monarch butterfly migration, which takes place each October when millions of butterflies cross our borders for a warmer life.
Rebecca Mattox, Certified Master Gardener, helped design, install, and will maintain the garden with the students’ assistance. Together, the contribution to the plight of the Monarch has shaped up to be a wonderful educational addition to the curriculum Ware Academy offers. The students are looking forward to the return of their friends in the warmer months!
