Building a Frog Pond

Educational Activities

The activity objectives are to introduce students to the needs of living things, specifically amphibians. Students will discuss the life-cycle of frogs and the changing needs they have with their changing lifestyle. They will also learn about the role of frogs as bio-indicators (bio = living) of ecosystem health and the factors currently threatening frogs species globally and locally. Students will discuss ways they can reduce their own impacts on their local environment and encourage native habitats. Students will work together to construct a suitable habitat for frogs.
