The UTSA Monarch and Milkweed team visited several elementary schools. Students interacted with monarch larva, pupa, and adults to better understand the difference between complete and incomplete metamorphosis. The students also took a trip in the life of a monarch as they learned specific ways to survive during their four stages of development using different techniques including behavior, coloration, and chemicals. The kids had no problem using their imagination to spend winter as their favorite animal. All were able to learn about winter survival strategies that are unique to the animal they chose before comparing them to winter survival strategies of the Monarch Butterfly.
