Transcript of Magnificent Monarchs: The Journey Through Migration

Magnificent Monarchs: The Journey Through Migration By: Helly Patel, Laura Books, and
Shala Pachta Introduction Helly's Hypothesis Laura's Hypothesis Variables Conclusion Paragraph Shala's Hypothesis The End The Monarchs are very fascinating animals. Monarchs are an important part of our world. We have each made a hypothesis, in the next slides. The only problem with the Monarchs is that the population is going down due to loss of habitat and food. When farmers use herbicides on the milkweed, the caterpillars eat the milkweed and it kills them. If we change the location from outside to inside, then 75% of the caterpillars will survive and become adults. If we change the location from outside to inside, 50% of the monarchs will survive. If we change the location from outside to inside, then 10% of the caterpillars will die and 90% will survive. The manipulated variable is the location of the caterpillar. The responding variable is if they survive or if they die. The constants are the food, habitat, type of caterpillar, climate, and where they came from. We kept the caterpillars in side until they hatched from their chrysalis. Then we took them outside and released them. Laura's hypothesis was incorrect; Helly's hypothesis was correct; and Shala's hypothesis was incorrect. 75% of the caterpillars lived and 25% of the caterpillars died. We are uncertain on how 2 of the caterpillars died. We have learned that caterpillars eat milkweed. We have also learned that male monarchs have thin black lines on their wings and females have thick black lines on their wings. One other thing we learned was caterpillars make a J- hook before they make their chrysalis. We wonder how many butterflies survive throughout their journey. This project has taught us many things and we will come out of this project knowing much more about monarchs and caterpillars. Thanks for watching! We hope you enjoyed! We loved doing this project and we will miss our butterflies!
