Monarch Larva Arrive at IC School

November 16, 2009- Our sixth grade is partnering with NASA in their latest experiment called Monarchs in Space. We got our monarch larva last Friday. They came in a kit which included an artificial diet (instead of milkweed), 6 larva, and dowel for transferring the larva to their rearing chambers. Our teacher, Mrs. Hill, built rearing chambers to place the larva in. We will check it daily to see if they are healthy and eating properly and track all changes.
