The first graders at Parkwood are participating in the University of Kansas Research Project "Monarch Watch". The students have been following the metamorphosis of monarch butterfly eggs that Mrs. Knight, Parkwood Science Para, gathered from Milkweed plants in her own and Parkwood's garden. The Parkwood first grade students assisted with the care and feeding of Monarch  caterpillars then anxiously awaited for the butterflies to emerge. After the a butterfly hatches from the chrysalis and dries its wings, it is then tagged for the University of Kansas Monarch Watch Project and sent on its way for the long journey to Central America. We anticipate tagging 25 Monarch butterflies this year.  Go to "photos" on our website to see all of the pictures of our First Graders releasing the butterflies.
