Tadpole Lenses Spawned by Frog Unit Study

Frog Unit Study The Frog Unit Study has grown so large that it is beginning to grow tadpole lenses.You will find links to my other frog and frog related lenses throughout this page. Each one will have even more ideas and activities to extend your Frog Unit Study. Enjoy your hop back and forth throughout the frog pond of ideas.

This frog unit study has hundreds of ideas to make your study of frogs fun, creative and hands-on. Children will be creating a frog pond in the sensory table, discovering the plants and animals who live in the frog's habitat, learning the anatomy of frogs and how frogs hop and jump. Throughout the unit there are suggestions for books, ideas for teaching reading and writing skills as well as projects to extend their knowledge of social studies, music and art.

Often teachers and homeschoolers find it difficult to connect math with their unit studies. This Frog Unit Studies offers dozens of frog related math activities and games to make a fully integrated unit study.

Frog Tale Newest tadpole lenses that have been spawned by the Frog Unit Study include Industrial Waste in the Frog Pond and The Frog Report.

We have all heard of the pollution that is plaguing our planet. Industrial Waste in the Frog Pond is a short story of A Walk in the Woods to look for tadpoles in vernal pools. Read this story to the children and encourage them to write their own suspenseful stories of their adventures as you progress through your Frog Unit Study.

Frog News The second is a collection of news articles about the disappearance of frogs around the world, the studies scientists are doing to try to understand the situation as well as information on monitoring frogs and the ways you can join in the effort. This is a collection of stories that I have collected since 2008. I use them to help children get a broad perspective on the plight of frogs and other amphibians throughout the world and to see what others are doing to monitor and try to help the situation. Frog these reports we write our own reports of what we learn in our area and publish it in our own classroom or homeschooling newspaper, The Frog Report.
