Spring and summer nights spent listening to the calls of frogs and toads are so peaceful.
Something about stumbling upon a frog or toad is peaceful, too. Maybe it’s because they often allow you to quietly sit and observe as they go about their daily life, well most toads do anyway.
This guide will first teach you the best places to look for frogs, toads, eggs and tadpoles. Once you find them, we’ll help you make the most of your observations in the field and at home.
You’ll find all kinds of hands-on suggestions such as:
crafting toad abodes
observing meal time
making toad inspired recipes
making various models
demonstrating skin permeability
building a life cycle
and much more!
The Frogs and Toads curriculum guide will also keep you busy learning about such things as:
- differences between frogs and toads
- cold-blooded animals
- defense mechanisms
- predator and prey relationships
- vernal pools
There are well over 70 lessons from which to choose – not to mention the 15 notebooking pages that are included!
Any child who brings frogs or toads home in their pocket will love this study! But, those of you who prefer to watch frogs and toads from a tad further distance will love it, too.
The guide is best used during spring or summer when frogs and toads can be most easily observed in nature. However, all but a handful of the lessons can easily be completed without the need for live critters. So, no worries if you don’t think you’ll have access to frogs or toads – or if you prefer to complete this study in autumn or winter. You’ll find plenty to do!
This curriculum pairs well with frog dissection, a rain forest study, or any study of amphibians, ponds, or general biology.
