For those of you looking for a science fair project — here is an idea that would not only be really interesting to do but also a great way to contribute to our understanding of Monarch butterflies and their lifecycles.
This video tells about the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project and provides a variety of ideas for areas to focus on for a science fair project:
Here are some areas that you can look at for your science fair project:
– track monarch populations
– understand monarch use of available habitat
– investigate some factors, such as weather and parasitism, which affect monarch populations
