Few sights are as majestic as monarch butterflies roosting in trees or flocks of whooper swans migrating across northern skies. Seasonal changes propel a wide variety of creatures to begin migrations - sometimes on an epic scale - to feeding, mating and breeding grounds. This video segment from Nature introduces the story of the seasonal migrations of four different species from across the planet: the wildebeests of East Africa, monarch butterflies of Mexico, sockeye salmon of North America, and whooper swans of Europe.
Seasonal changes impel a wide variety of creatures to begin migrations - sometimes on an epic scale - to feeding, mating, and breeding grounds. These journeys sometimes cover thousands of miles and require ingenious methods to accomplish.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
