Frog Resources

We are currently studying amphibians (one of the groups of vertebrates we will study this year). After spending a day introducing vertebrates and a day introducing amphibians, we are now delving more deeply into one of the amphibian orders: frogs/toads.

I thought I'd share resources we are using for this.

Amphibians and Reptiles by Teacher Created Materials
ISBN 1576903788
More fun reproducibles.

Frogs . . . by Scholastic
ISBN 0439051789
Lots of nice reproducible activities in this.

The Amazing Animal Activity Book
ISBN 0590964046
Nice paper-crafts for vertebrates with a section on amphibians.
