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 2023, 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.
