We will learn about 10 species of frogs and toads native to the Northeast. You will need drawing paper, pencil, eraser, sharpener, and colored pencils. I can send printable cards. What makes frogs different from toads? We'll compare two species visually and discuss as a group. You're encouraged to take notes. Look at the resources provided. What is the difference between habitat and range? What are some defense strategies? Choose one species to focus on. Follow the step-by-step drawing...
Students will understand the difference between frogs and toads and habitat and range. They will be able to describe defense strategies of their animal and other interesting facts. They will be able to draw a frog or toad using basic shapes.
I am a certified FrogWatch member, identifying species in my state for data collection as a Citizen Scientist. I am also a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators New England, specializing in frogs, toads, and insects.
Preparing materials for class, including printing out blank trading cards and how to draw a frog sheet.
1 file available upon enrollmentA one-page handout of four blank trading cards will be provided. Students will need a pencil, eraser, sharpener, colored pencils, and paper for sketching and notes.

1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be sharing sound files from this website: http://wildlifeofct.com/amphibians%20and%20reptiles.html so students can hear various frog species. I will also explain FrogWatch, a citizen science program for families. You can find your local chapter here: https://www.aza.org/current-frogwatch-volunteers. We will also use my own Kahoot! which students will need a touch-screen device for, but do not need an account.
