Two articles on Monarch Butterflies going into extinction. One talks about the dangers that the Monarch Butterflies are going through and the second article is about Iowa RAGBRAI involvement. I always have students read this for Day of the Dead. We make butterfly clusters afterwards. We hang the butterflies around the school and have facts about Monarch butterflies. This ties in with Day of the Dead because the butterflies migrate Nov 1-7. It's believed that the butterflies are the loved ones coming back to visit.
