Students at P.B. Smith Elementary School’s ecology club are learning about the life and migration of monarch butterflies.
P.B.史密斯小学生态俱乐部的学生们正在学习帝王蝶的生活和迁徙。
They learn in the classroom about the butterfly’s need for certain plants. They learn scientific words for the stages of a butterfly’s life. But, ecology club teacher Barbara Dennee says they learn the most when they visit their school garden in Warrenton, Virginia. There they wait patiently for the monarch to arrive.
他们在教室里学习蝴蝶对某些植物有一定的需求。他们还学习蝴蝶各生命阶段的科学词汇。但是,生态学俱乐部的老师芭芭拉·丹尼说,当学生们参观弗吉尼亚沃伦顿的学校花园时,他们学到的最多。他们在那里耐心地等待帝王蝶的到来。
Just recently, monarch butterflies landed in their garden where among vegetables and herbs, the students planted the milkweed plant.
就在最近,帝王蝶降落在他们的花园里,在众多蔬菜和药草中,就有学生们种植的马利筋植物。
Monarchs lay their eggs on milkweed plants. There are concerns that the plants have been disappearing because of poor weather conditions and the use of herbicides. So, monarchs, which travel between Canada and Mexico during their migration, now have far fewer places to stop.
帝王蝶在马利筋植物上产卵。有人担心,由于恶劣的气候条件和除草剂的使用,这些植物在逐渐消失。因此,在加拿大和墨西哥之间迁徙的帝王蝶的栖息地变少。
Dennee explained to her students that planting the milkweed would create a station for the butterfly.
丹尼向她的学生解释说种植马利筋植物会为蝴蝶建立一个栖息场所。
We talk about the need for a certain plant for an organism to survive. The big one is the milkweed.That is the host for the butterfly, the monarch specifically. And we’ve planted, from seed, milkweed plants.
“我们说有某些植物对生物体的生存很必要。最重要的就是马利筋。它是蝴蝶的主人,尤其是帝王蝶的主人。我们播种并种植了马利筋植物。”
Ten-year old Keenan Whitney said he learned the importance of the cycles of nature.
10岁的基南·惠特尼说他认识到了自然循环的重要性。
I only thought they pollinated one flower, for some reason, but I’ve learned they pollinate a lot of flowers and that if we didn’t have butterflies, we probably wouldn’t have any food.”
“我原以为它们出于某一原因只给一朵花授粉,但我后来明白它们给很多花授粉,如果没有蝴蝶,我们可能就没有食物了。”
Students began to learn how to plant and harvest many herbs and vegetables when the ecology club started its vegetable garden a few years ago. They give some of the produce to their school cafeteria and the rest to a local foodbank.
几年前,生态俱乐部开始建造菜园,学生们开始学习如何种植和收获许多草药和蔬菜。他们把一些农产品送到学校食堂,其余的则送到当地的食品银行。
Then Keely Scott, a high school student who once attended Smith Elementary, needed a Girl Scout project. She persuaded the school to add milkweed to the garden to attract butterflies.
曾就读于史密斯小学的高中生基利·斯科特需要一个女童子军项目。她说服学校在花园中种植马利筋来吸引蝴蝶。
I love looking at all the butterflies and I was like, ’Wow, well we have a decreased population in our area.’ And I thought, ’Oh, well I can fix that.’ So I developed this idea and Mrs.Dennee supported me 100 percent."
“我喜欢观察所有的蝴蝶,我想,‘天哪,我们这个地区的蝴蝶数量减少了。’我想,‘哦,我能解决这个问题。’所以我产生了这个想法,丹尼太太百分之百地支持我。”
Eleven-year old Amelia Jakub loves watching nature. She is excited about the daily discoveries.
11岁的阿米莉亚·雅各布喜欢观察大自然。她对每天的发现感到兴奋。
“We saw several swallowtails and caterpillars. And there’s this really fat one that should be turning into a chrysalis soon. I’m quite surprised at how it can turn to chrysalis. And just how does its body form into the beautiful body of a butterfly?”
“我们看到了几只凤蝶和毛毛虫。其中有只非常肥大,应该很快就会变成蝶蛹。我很惊讶它怎么会变成蝶蛹。它的身体是如何变成美丽的蝴蝶的?”
Dennee says her mission is to teach children about the connection between humans and nature. When they understand this, she said, she has succeeded in her mission.
丹尼说她的任务是教给孩子人类和自然的关系。她说,当他们理解了这一点,她就成功地完成了使命。
She said the experience of gardening is important.“They can say these words, but they don’t really understand until they actually do something,” she said.
她说园艺的经历很重要。她说:“他们可以说出这些话,但直到他们真正去做,才能真正理解。”
