I wanted to make this aware to those who have or educate children that beginning this month (October), children from the United States, Mexico, and Canada will tune in to watch the kickoff of MonarchLIVE.
MonarchLIVE is an exciting conservation education project that uses satellite broadcast and Web technology to bring the magic of monarch butterfly migration to classrooms and children throughout the Western Hemisphere. The project is available for free to classrooms. While the main audience targets grades 4 thru 8, the project provides a wide range of extensions that will support both younger and older students. It is estimated that more than 400,000 thousand children across the country will participate throughout the 2008-09 school year.
