MONARCH BUTTERFLIES were released in the school garden by Broad Street School students. The butterflies will migrate to Mexico. The butterfly eggs were discovered on milkweed plants and brought into the art room for students to study the transformation from egg to caterpillar then to chrysalis and finally to a butterfly. It was here, during art class, students had the opportunity to study, draw and write original stories about the transformation and migratory journey of the Monarch butterfly. This Monarch’s journey began in Canada, then it travelled through Bridgeton and next to Mexico. Last summer, Broad Street School teachers, Ms. Early, Ms. Macchia, Ms. Reilly, Ms. Santiago, and Dr. Pai attended the two-day Monarch Butterfly Teacher Network workshop to learn how to use butterflies to teach concepts and skills through integrating themes in language arts, math, geography, science and the arts.
