When I was little I grew up with 3 brothers (my little sister didn't come till I was 12) and now I have 3 boys...so I seem to do lots of "boy themed" activities. This one is no exception! :)
We found a great site that answered a few of our immediate questions like what frogs eat, what kind of house they should have and how to keep them alive.
Pretty soon we started seeing some changes...
Pretty soon all of our frogs had 4 legs, they started looking like frogs (with raised eyes, long legs, and started sitting on rocks and hopping off our hands). We took all of them to a wetland near us and let all but 4 go. We will watch them for a bit more, hoping that we can see them shed their tail and grow a bit bigger.
As we have been studying these really fun critters we have done a few activities and started a lapbook. If you are interested in doing your own lapbook or research on frogs for science, I have included the link here. If you want to grow your own frogs...here is a site you can buy eggs from. (here is a more pricey unit and here is one that is less expensive)
Learning hands on is one way our family makes school so much more fun and interesting for our boys. What are some of the ways you make learning more interesting and fun for your kids?
