The SMART notebook file titled "Frog Fact Finder" can be used while reading either From Tadpole to Frog or From Tadpole to Frog
(different version). The Frog Life Cycle Worksheet has space for
students to draw and label the life cycle, as well as complete a cloze
paragraph on the life cycle.
As part of our Life Cycle unit, I include a lesson on oviparous and
non-oviparous animals centered around Ruth Heller's book "Chickens
Aren't the Only Ones." There is a SMART Board notebook file and a word
document (students need to identify an oviparous and non-oviparous
animal and then look up their definitions in a dictionary).
