If You Hopped Like a Frog
Get your frogs hopping by introducing them to the concepts of ratio and proportion. As a class, they perform arithmetic operations using ratios then discover how they represent quantitative relationships. In groups, they write their own ratios and proportions using information, including a comparison of their jump length to that of a frog.
