This 80 page Project Based Learning Science unit is filled with engaging activities about our endangered monarch butterflies. I've also included videos, and a Powerpoint about Monarchs. This beautiful migrating butterfly is quickly diminishing. After students gather information about the monarch, they can come up with their own ideas for SAVING THE MONARCHS.

This PBL unit incorporate 21st Century skills with challenging, engaging, and creative activities. There are lots of opportunities for differentiation, cooperative learning, and technology integration.

My Reflections

** Teachers, you can decide the order you wish to implement the unit. You may want some students to do some of the easier activities and others to do more research and problem-solving. They can easily work in groups during this project.

Please continue to visit my store for more project based learning units.

**Note: Activities can easily be adapted for enrichment or gifted students in other grade levels.
