This month’s Nature Book Club theme is Amphibians and Reptiles. We tried to find real-life creatures to exam but we were unsuccessful with our busy schedule. We have been successful in the past which you can read our frog catching and river exploration.
We own a plastic frog life cycle set and a few books about frogs so we could still learn about them. The books From Tadpole to Frog goes over the life cycle of a frog nicely as does The Magic School Bus Hops Home and Curious George Tadpole Trouble. My boys have enjoyed each of these books.
My boys love learning about science and using tools like magnifying glasses and life cycle toys for exploration. I set up this activity on our kids picnic table on our front porch since the weather was so nice.
We own many sets of colored pencils from various brands which allowed the boys a nice choice of greens and blues to work with while drawing the frog life cycle. Each child had his own clipboard with plain printer paper so they could work at their own pace and draw what they saw while exploring the frog life cycle set.
I had made felt puppets many years ago while I was in college and decided to complete a set of them for the frog life cycle for my boys to enjoy!
