Frog Pond Science, Hop Into Action!

If I had it my way, exploring a frog pond ecosystem would be mandatory for all students.  The observations and interaction with frogs, dragonflies, cattails, lily pads and so much more make for an incredible learning opportunity every child should experience.  One of the most popular classes that I offer is Frog Pond Science.  For more information, check out the Amphibian Encounter lesson in Hop Into Action, The Amphibian Curriculum For Grades K-4.

Record your findings at a frog pond for the Citizen Science program FrogWatch USA.   The program helps you to learn about the wetlands in your community and conserve amphibians by reporting the calls of local frogs and toads that you hear.
