Natalie W, Trey F, Ethan L, Katherine P, Corbin P

We wanted to learn if Monarch butterflies preferred one kind of liquid over another. We gave butterflies a choice between two liquids that were either 1. water 2.gatorade 3.orange juice or 4. juicy juice. We observed the butterflies every five minutes for ten minutes total. We recorded if they went to a dish of liquid, and if they ate.
