Get Real, Serve

Participate in Journey North’s migration tracking. Students can choose from several organisms to track. Talk about the animal and how to identify it, and then take the students outside during spring or fall migration times to count how many they see. You will need to register on the website to add your observations. You can also choose to do a symbolic migration, which involves sending paper butterflies to students in Mexico. Visit the Journey North website for more details.
