Abstract: We study curve shortening flows in two types of warped product manifolds. These manifolds are $ \mathbb{S}^1 \times N$ with two types of warped metrics where $ \mathbb{S}^1$ is the unit circle in $ \mathbb{R}^2$ and $ N$ is a closed Riemannian manifold. If the initial curve is a graph over $ \mathbb{S}^1$, then its curve shortening flow exists for all times and finally converges to a geodesic closed curve.
