This past November we did a study on frogs and turned it into a lapbook. We had a lot of fun learning about frogs.

We went into the bible looking for frogs and boy did we find them in the book of exodus. That blew the kids minds that the bible talked about frogs.

We took a field trip to see more examples of frogs and that was a lot of fun.

We not only learned more about frogs than I could have ever gotten out of a book but the store employees were even nice enough to tell us about some other amphibians.

We played with a lizard and entertained a giant python. We will definitely go back and visit them sometime in the future.

We have covered the frog life cycle and anatomy. We read about their classification, AMPHIBIANS which means double life.

We also learned about how God provides for the frogs (their diet) and how God helps them to protect themselves (defenses) from predators.
The highlight of this study was when Daddy found a frog in our backyard and caught it for us to take pictures of and get a closer look at.

We are really loving the freedom that homeschooling gives us to study whatever the children are interested in and to do it in a way that is best for all of us.
