for Frog Day
students will create a colorful frog picture.
Printout or plain paper. (The Frog Printout
may be best copied on to heavier paper, such as
- Bright colored paints,
markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc.
- Link to one of the
following websites or books with pictures of colorful
frogs - Colorful
Frogs, or The
Ultimate Frog Guide (do searches on the poisonous
frogs). A book suggestion would be "Poison Dart
Frogs" by Jennifer Owens Dewey.
- Share pictures of the
poisonous frogs from the websites or from books.
Discuss how colorful the frogs are and the reason for
their bright colors. This is how the frog warns
predators that it's dangerous.
- Pass out the Frog
Printout, or plain paper, and allow the students
to create their own versions of poisonous frogs using
their chosen medium.
- Display the colorful frogs
around the classroom or in the hallway. For a
rainforest feel, you may want to create large trees
out of butcher paper to house the frogs.
- Create a pond environment
on butcher paper. Assign students different
parts of the pond to create out of various art
- Read the book
"Tuesday" by David Wiesner and have the
students create pictures of journeys they would like
to take on a lily pad.
