We finally finished up our habitat books at school on Thursday. Now I just have to put them all together. The kids worked so hard on them and they look great. Our last habitat we talked about was ponds. Here is a page from our book.
- The kids painted a small cupcake liner green for the turtles shell. Then they glued it to the cut out turtle pattern.
- They ripped green paper to look like cattails and added a small brown pom pom.
We read the book IN the Small, Small Pond and then sang the song 5 Green and Speckled frogs and I borrowed this great prop from my friend. Thanks Riane! The kids loved it and played with it throughout the day.
I found this great Frog grid game and the kids asked to play it over and over again. I printed off two copies and had small frog counters. Each student took turns rolling the die and adding that many frogs to their lily pads. The first one to fill up their board won.
