Checklist - Symbolic Migration Project

Symbolic Migration Checklist

Submission deadline: October 9, 2020

1) ___ I understand that a $10 participation fee in the form of a “Passenger Ticket” for each Class  Ambassador Butterfly is required. I have purchased a “Passenger Ticket” online completing all of the information requested so that I can be contacted if necessary.

2) ___ I understand that our Class Ambassador Butterfly will be our gift to the student in Mexico that receives it. I also understand that we will not receive our own life-sized butterflies next spring but will receive life-sized butterflies made this fall by students across North America, remembering that this is a class project and the return ratio may not be 1:1.

3) ___ I will report to the  Journey North Symbolic Migration Participant FALL ONLY map when I share our Class Ambassador Butterfly so that our school will appear on the map of international participants, including the teacher name, school, town, state / province in the message. We will take a picture of our Class Ambassador Butterfly to include when we report to the Fall. Map (optional). Because only one picture and teacher contact will be visible for a single location on the Journey North map, please choose ONE teacher to be the point of contact for the school and make a photo collage of all Class Ambassadors to upload to Journey North’s Fall Symbolic Migration Participant Map. Please refer to these special instructions for schools with multiple participating classrooms at the bottom of page 10 in the Teacher Packet. 

4) ___ Items created, scanned/photographed, labeled, and saved to folder Our Class Butterfly was creatively made on one side of a letter-sized file folder (directions on page 4 of the Teacher Packet). The Passenger Ticket #, teacher’s name, school name and full address is written on the front of the folder. Individual life-sized monarchs, each legibly labeled with the student’s first name, school name, town, state/province and teacher’s email address, one butterfly per student (ideally using one of the suggested templates links on page 5 of the Teacher Packet) A completed “Hello Friends/Hola Amigos” letter (directions on page 5; letter on page 7 of the Teacher Packet) A class photo OR a one-page letter written in Spanish (optional) (directions on page 5 of the Teacher Packet) A copy of the “Passenger Ticket” receipt from your online payment (link for payment in #1 above; directions for labeling on page 4 of the Teacher Packet) [link to Teacher Packet forthcoming]

5) ___ Our Google Drive folder: Contains ONLY ONE Class Butterfly and its enclosures (listed in #4 above) per folder. Is submitted by October 9, 2020, i.e., shared with symbolic-migration@eealliance.org

6) ___ In the SPRING, I will contact teachers directly through email when we receive the cluster of life-sized butterflies so that the children who made them can find out where their butterflies landed.
