One of our students recently brought in a tadpole she had discovered while enjoying a day at the pond with her Meemaw (grandmother). We spent the whole afternoon observing the little creature and talking about all kinds of froggy things! We pulled out our frog life cycle cards and models and learned about how tadpoles grow into frogs.
Add these resources to your shelves if someone brings in a tadpole to your class! (Affiliate links included below)
