Monarchs in the Classroom aims to promote and facilitate
inquiry-based education through original
curricula and research opportunities. We use monarchs and other insects
as focal organisms in inquiry-based teacher
workshops and conduct an annual Insect Fair
to spotlight student research. The monarch butterfly serves as an excellent tool
to get students excited about science and to teach inquiry in the classroom.
Monarchs in the Classroom is a program of University of Minnesota Extension and the University of
Minnesota Department of Fisheries,
Wildlife and Conservation Biology.
The 18th annual Insect Fair will be held on Saturday, December 06, 2014. If you'd like to participate for the first time, please Register here. Returning teachers, please Login to your account to reactivate your registration.
