Education Project: Mapping the Migratory Patterns of the Monarch Butterfly

littleBits in the classroom

September 9, 2013

The seasons are changing and soon the Monarch butterflies will begin flying south to warmer climates. Like birds, these unique butterflies migrate twice a year and journey over 2,000 miles between the United States and Mexico. In honor of this amazing species, littleBits brings your butterfly and geography lessons to life across a STEAM continuum by combining science, electronics, engineering, art, and geography. Encourage your students to think like entomologists and get tracking!

Our littleBits STEAM Monarch Project is divided into three activities: 1. Butterfly tagging, 2. Butterfly migration patterns, and 3. Butterfly migration mapping.
