Ribbit! Ribbit! Do you have a student interested in learning about frogs? If so, grab our free Frogs Lapbook.
Frogs are a fabulous choice for an animal study because most of us have them close to our homes and some of us even have frogs (or toads) in our yards.
Frogs Lapbook Lessons
Here are some sample lessons from the Frogs Lapbook:
Predator and Prey
Discuss predator and prey with your student:
predator- an animal that lives by killing and eating other animals
prey- animal hunted or killed by another animal for food
Who does a frog hunt? spider, worm, ant, mosquito, earwig (answers will vary according to what book you read)
Who hunts a frog? stork, blue heron, other birds, people, snakes, other birds (answers will vary according to what book you read)
Frog Anatomy: Feet
Different frogs use their feet for different things.
Tree frogs use their feet (with sticky pads) for climbing.
Aquatic frogs have webbed toes that aid in swimming.
Burrowing frogs use their feet for digging in the sand (in order to keep moist in the heat)
Some frogs even have parachute-like webbing on their feet which helps them to glide from tree to tree or leaf to leaf.
Frog Anatomy: Skin
Frogs drink and breathe through their skin! Their skin is slimy because frog skin secretes mucus that helps keep it moist. Even with the slimy skin, these frogs need to stay near water. In addition to jumping in water, frogs and toads can get moisture from dew, or they can burrow underground into moist soil.
Frogs shed their skin regularly to keep it healthy. In order to get out of their skin, they turn and twist (and “act like they have the hiccups!”). After they have the skin off (a frog pulls it off over its head!), they eat it.
