On one of our nature walks, we found a whole little pond of tadpoles. The first time we spotted them, they were just little specks. I was actually surprised there were any alive since they were in a goldfish pond.
The next time we came back, we were surprised at how big some of them were already. We went back this afternoon and they are basically the same size as in this picture above. My oldest daughter brought a jar to bring 2 tadpoles home to observe. She has researched how to care for them and has a little habitat ready.
I will admit that observing frogs wasn’t my plan at all. Who could resist after we found the tadpoles though? So now we are gathering supplies for a frog mini-unit. I’ve been pinning frog crafts, frog activities, and frog resources on my Pond Life Pinterest board. Have you done a study on frogs or tadpoles? Any resources I should check out?
