Why Lesson Planet?
Students participate in grade appropriate research to gain background information on frogs and tadpoles. In this frog and tadpole survival instructional activity, students simulate conditions of being a frog in receding pool. Students are eliminated from the simulated pool by predators and lack of resources for survival. Students understand the environmental factors that are eliminating the frogs. Students record information on graphs and logs. Older students later write persuasive pieces.
