Monarch Butterfly  Migration

Hooray! On to Morgan County (+56.3 Miles)
November 12, 2006: Migration Day 39

They're finally out of Boone County's grip! All 18 took off behind Brooke, today's lead pilot. They hadn't flown for 8 days, yet every single chick stayed with Brook's plane the whole way (1 hour, 31 minutes)!

In the Classroom

  • Today's Journal Question: Joe reported conditions: no tailwind, no headwind, and bumpy all the way, even though they flew at altitudes anywhere from 700 to 1,000 feet. What does this make you think about everyone's motivation to GO?
  • Craniac Kids in Action: Check out Whooping Crane Central, where students in Ms. Black's class in Canada are working hard to raise money for Operation Migration, and to share what they know about this endangered species.

Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in cooperation with the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
