Frog or Toad? Children want to know! Books on this subject are often included in school libraries or classroom leveled reading nonfiction bins. Children wonder whether reptiles the are seeing are frogs and toads. Many adults can’t tell the difference, but their similarities and differences are easy to spot.
However, these educational resources may be used with or without supporting books. Maybe your class has been catching a few frogs or toad. Some of my classes loved catching the little critters, and they also have to learn to release them, as well. Sometimes the same poor little creatures seem to be caught over and over “just to show” friends, and so they may need to be moved to another area. The excitement never ends when children are observing nature!
