Science In Music Class!!

Science in Music Class???                                                                    Emerging butterflies and a song about their journey made for a great science infused Music lesson.

In our music classes, we sang a song called Three Thousand Miles. The song talks about the journey that monarch butterflies make when they migrate to Mexico in September or October to spend the winter. Then in the spring they will lay their eggs along the way while they migrate north.

Over the course of about 12 days, the students were able to watch caterpillars munch on milkweed, then turn into a chrysalis and finally emerge into beautiful monarch butterflies!
