5 minutes- This will be spent building background knowledge and discussing what learners already know about all types of frogs. 20-25 minutes- I will read parts of the stories "Frogs!" and "Tale of a Tadpole". I will share facts from the books and share pictures that I have taken of frogs as well. I will stop frequently to discuss what we've read, point out details from pictures, explain why and how pictures are labeled certain ways, discuss key vocabulary and allow time for learners to...
Students will learn facts about frogs, toads and their life cycle. We will discuss the vocabulary words: croak, gills, habitat, poison, webbed, nostril tail and tongue.
I am offering this class because I love animals and nature! Every year I would purchase tadpoles for my classroom. My students would help care for and observe the process of a tadpole becoming a frog. I have learned a lot over the years :)!
Homework is optional. Some homework ideas are: 1. Students may draw and label the life cycle of a frog. 2. Students may draw and label the parts of a frog 3. Students may observe frogs in the wild and write about what they see. I will be sending a few worksheet options for all learners at the end of our class time.
Attached handout (or a plain piece of paper), markers, crayons and/or pencils. It is not necessary for you to purchase any materials for this class. If would like to purchase the books that I will be reading they are as follows. I will be reading the book "Frogs!" by Elizabeth Carney and the book "Tale of a Tadpole" by Karen Wallace. These books are available for purchase on Amazon. "Frogs" is $4.50 and "Tale of a Tadpole" is $7.70.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will assess students orally at the end of the lesson. I will ask them what they learned about frogs, toads and their life cycle. I will also ask them what their favorite thing was that they learned about frogs.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
