Reflection: Real World Applications Butterfly Migration (Part 2/2) - Section 6: Putting it All Together: The Migration of the Super Generation


In this teaching reflection, I explain how I encourage my students to get involved in a Citizen Science project. We actually participate in several throughout the year. Citizen Science is an excellent way to give back to the community. It gives students a purpose and makes them feel as though they are making a difference in the world around them.
