Product Description

Why are frogs and toads called amphibians? How are they different from reptiles? Where are you most likely to find wild amphibians?

In this illustrated course, students get to choose from eight practical projects where they get to study live amphibians. Students might even hatch some amphibian eggs! They learn about tree frogs and salamanders, and find out how amphibians affect the lives of people and other animals.

The course makes a young student aware of the existence of amphibians and how they are different from other animals.

Materials You Need to Supply: Text: A guide book on amphibians (Golden Guide series published by Golden Books or Peterson's First Guides published by Houghton Mifflin are suggested). An encyclopedia with good pictures and data on amphibian metamorphosis (if your guide book doesn't show it), such as New Standard, World Book or Compton'sMaterials: Binoculars (a kind that will focus close up), coloring crayons and drawing paper.
