    We think monarchs know when to leave Mexico when they finish laying
    their eggs. They might also leave when the weather gets hot. It takes
    a certain time to lay eggs, it is probably a natural instinct that they
    know to leave after mating. Thats what we think about how they know
    when to leave Mexico. Our names are Carlie, Karisa, Bryon, and Steven.
    We are from Mariposa, Ca. We are in Mrs. Ubner's fifth grade class.
