For our February home-study field trip, I took the girls to see Flight of the Butterflies at the Omni. We all enjoyed the movie!
The iconic monarch butterfly is a true marvel of nature. Weighing less than a penny, it makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across a continent, with pinpoint navigational accuracy, to a secluded place it has never been. Follow the monarchs’ perilous and extraordinary journey and join hundreds of millions of real butterflies in the remote mountain peaks of Mexico. For the first time ever, look inside a chrysalis, thanks to advanced MRI and micro CT scans. Be captivated by the true and compelling story of an intrepid scientist’s 40-year search to find their secret hideaway, with the help of citizen scientists across North America. Unravel the mysteries and experience the Flight of the Butterflies.
I took along butterfly themed worksheets that I found on education.com. One math, and one drawing worksheet for my 3rd grader; and one math, and one fine motor skills worksheet for my preschooler. They worked on those while we waited in line to go into the theater. My oldest had a bit of a bad attitude about doing her worksheets this time, but my youngest was more than happy to.
