Monarch Eggs Project

The Monarch Eggs Project began as a Iowa DNR REAP CEP Grant. The project is in transition from grant-funded to self-sustaining. This collaboration between Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, USDA-ARS Unit, County Extension staff, and K-12 students and teachers is designed to help meet the outreach needs as presented in the Iowa Monarch Conservation Strategy and designed to meet the Iowa Science standards in K-12 classrooms. Youth are our decision makers of the future!

The Monarch Eggs Project Kit includes supplies and monarch eggs that provide opportunities for students learn about the monarch life cycle through a citizen science approach. Each kit includes 30 eggs so that each youth begins with a caterpillar.

Supplies for one classroom includes:
  • cups (30), filter paper (30), small petri plates with agar (30), and size 00 paint brush (1)
  • Print resources include life stage time timeline and pictorial timeline of the rearing process.
  • Electronic resources will be provided to support implementation.

In 2024, project includes state-wide monarch tagging project. Other citizen science opportunities will be shared as opportunities for authentic science teaching and learning.

Participation includes collaboration with state 4-H Staff, ISU researchers, and USDA experts to support implementation.
