Journey North engages citizen scientists in a global study of wildlife migration and seasonal change. K-12 students (AND, the general public— backyard, etc. observers–may also participate!) share their own field observations with classmates across North America. They track the coming of spring through the migration patterns of monarch butterflies, robins, hummingbirds, whooping cranes, gray whales, bald eagles— and other birds and mammals; the budding of plants; changing sunlight; and other natural events.
Visit the site and find migration maps, images, standards-based lesson plans, activities and information to help students (and YOU) make local observations and fit them into a global context. Widely considered a best-practices model for education, Journey North is the nation’s premiere citizen science project for children.
