We have been working on a Frog theme this past week! We did a mini research report about frogs and toads. The children read fact sentences about frogs and toads and then sorted them into different categories! They liked the Cool Fact category the best!
We have also been reading Frog and Toad stories and we made a story map about The Lost Button story!
They added a lot of detail to their story maps!
We made origami frogs to act out the story map! One student really enjoyed making them and made lots of them. She gave some of them away, too!
And, of course, we had to have a origami frog hopping contest!
We have also been doing some more science experiments!
This one seems like magic. We put 5 bent toothpicks together on a plate. The toothpicks are arranged so that the bent parts are close together. We used a straw as an eyedropper and dropped several drops of water on the toothpicks where they are bent. Watch what happens!
It was fun to see their faces as the star appears!
