Title: Monarch Butterfly Project

Summary:  This video is a summary of a monarch butterfly project that students from Rockledge Elementary completed.  The project is designed to imitate the migration of the monarch butterflies.  Each child creates a butterfly and sends the butterfly to migrate and connects with the child who receives his or her butterfly.

Reflection: I think this is a very good project based learning project for students in the elementary grades.  The project is easy for children to relate to and is still a concrete concept for children to grasp.  I think this project is also very good in the fact that it causes children to connect and relate to each other through the process.  This is a real life project that could be carried across all subject areas as well.
