Students Learnt About the Mission Blue
Thanks to our teacher toolkit and our school assembly presentation available online, we were able to reach many students from all over the country. Thanks to these educational materials, students have learnt about these butterflies and how important and fragile they are.
If you want to learn about the Mission Blue butterflies, you can still find all the activities in our teacher toolkit.
