Music and Science Cross-Cutting Project

After 5th graders were introduced to Monarch butterfly migration patterns on their Fire Island trip, Dr. da Silva tied the song "Three Thousand Miles" and science lessons into music classes this fall.

Students helped to create a butterfly garden in the Robbins Lane courtyard by clearing debris and planting milkweed pods.  A music video of this scientific and musical journey is being created.  Stay tuned for more pictures and videos!
